This bowl came from the Salvo's a year ago and at the time had the remnants of a Nuutajarvi sticker. The signature was extremely hard to see but it is engraved Oiva Toikka Nuutajarvi.

The series that it hails from is called Tunturissa which refers to the landscape that we might call "Arctic tundra". Toikka did various colour combinations that reflect seasonal and temporal visions of the ecotone between the tundra and the forest in Finland. The word 'tundra' from the Sami word "tundar" = "uplands," "treeless mountain tract." (wikipedia).

The decor on this vase is called Ruska - an autumn colour variant.

The bowl or 'kulho' is 9 cm high and weighs just 265 grammes. It is blown and moulded glass. The production of these pieces dates to 1987 - 1989; it's catalogue number is 822-043.

For us 'down under' this is the beginning of autumn.
So this is an attempt at an Antipodean Easter Autumn Greeting.

Happy Easter!

    Love the concept of this bowl. We have just watched Frozen Planet by National Geographic and the bowl is spot on!
    We have just finished our egg hunt and now are on the begging for chocolate phase. Since they just caught me sneaking an egg, who am I to say no?

    Very nice! Is that a piece of Lucite you have used for the pedestal?
    Or is that glass?

    Many thanks CACTUSCORNER. I have two perspex blocks that I use at home. This is the larger one. The other is higher but half as wide. I found them at the Salvo's years ago and have found them interesting to use.
