Small Heiki combines the perfection of glass with the imperfection of natural branches. Display it on a sideboard or on a bedside table, and enjoy gazing at the contrast between the transparent part and powdery base, just like a painting.
Inspired by the buckets to be found in Finnish saunas, the Mini Heiki vases are freehand blown containers, soft and bulbous.
Dimensions - height 18 to 20cm, diameter 12cm
Due to the handmade nature of the pieces, dimensions are approximate.
Handmade in Europe, by individual craftsmen: freehand blown glass (England), wood (Finland or Germany). The materials then come to our warehouse in Germany where they are fitted and assembled.
Craft challenge, the Heiki vases are a real performance in their making:
- they are blown without a mould
- they have these two holes drilled into the glass while still hot, and kept open until the glass has cooled down
- they show two distinct glass colours that are not shifting
