Those Fabulous Finnish

Thanks to Julia @ hooked on houses for today's blog party..

The planning begins; required is a Easter worthy table setting.....



This year, it all began with this very bowl...not just any bowl

For you see it is a Tapio Wirkkala creation that I have long adored. My parents brought home pieces of his glassware from a trip to Scandinavia in the 60's. Even as a child I thought his work was so unique and contemporary, perhaps not in those very words! More like; cool, or groovy.

I began my hunt several years ago to start my own collection of Wirkkala wonders. After great patience & determination; bidding & re-bidding on ebay, I won my first piece, the pedestal bowl. Even today there are still great deals on ebay of his work. Help with your 'go' on ebay, search here. It takes time & perseverance. This baby came all the way from Australia to be in my home. Even with shipping costs, I managed to get this beloved piece for under $50 & in perfect condition.

There is no doubt, I will cherish it always. For more information about this magnificent man who pioneered Finnish industrial arts, read here

Since Fridays are all about dreaming the good life, I have decided to invite "Tapio Wirkkala" to Easter -
