    This is the fourth of the birthday gifts i got from Carlos almost a month ago. It was a total surprise... It's an amazing red vase, probably a unika item, with a wavy white pattern on top. It really is a beauty.

    Unfortunately I've been unable to find out anything about it. I have been told it dates back from around 1970. I've also been told this very vase appears on the cover of a book dedicated to Orvola's work, but haven't found it yet.

    It's fully signed on the base "Heikki Orvola Nuutajärvi Notsjö".

      Clearly Carlos and you deserve each other!

      Fantastic piece! The way that white has been included is really something.

      I have been a fan of Nuutajarvi glass for a long time ... often over-looked, I am a fan of Heikki Orvola's work. Nice vase!

      Thanks Mani and Twentiethc!!!

      I've heard Orvola is the next great Finnish name to collect. I've certainly seen amazing stuff by him, but will be kind to the rest of the world and will remain more than contented with just one amazing vase designed by him (well, perhaps ther will be a second one in the future LOL )
