    Timo Sarpaneva once said about Claritas serie that he wanted to seal bands of eternity in the silence of glass. The height of the item is 11cm and the item is made in 1984, and the model number is C56. This is a very interesting Claritas item which inspires me to imagine of our Earth as a part of big picture. That is, the star systems, galaxies and the big unknown out there in the eternal cosmos. The big air bubble in the item mirrors and replicates the tiny bubbles in a smaller scale inside the big air bubble.
