    Wow! I absolutely love these Sarpaneva's Claritas!!! They're so unusual not having a polished base!! Here's mine that, as you can see, works as a vase:

    by the way, I guess they are signed, aren't they?

    Interesting name too!
    Are you a fan of Leerdam's Sybren (Iep) V.?

    yes I like the work of sybren valkema i have 4 unica from him 3 made in Zweden and 1 made at his home in the netherlands 3 were made with the graal techniek i will post photos later
    all 3 claritas pieces are signed 1984 c and a number the clear one is 27 cm I like the fact that its cute in the middle and the glass distorches when you walk around it

    Now that's a great photo too!
    My orkidea on CW is here:
    it is marked Timo Sarpaneva and the the design number 3568.
    I thought 68 was the year.
    There is another here at scandinavian_pieces:
    I thought the last two numbers were the year. Am I worn?
  7. vetraio50 vetraio50, 3 years ago
    Am I wrong, not worn?

    I wish I could help about the orkidea question, but that's a difficut one... There's a lot of different sizes of them and I think that's one of the important issues. If you're on facebook there's a group there called Finnish Design Glass Lovers and I'm pretty sure Tanja or Heidi (they're the real Finnish glass experts!) will be able to help you there.
