Tapio demonstrates the sensitivity to the material in the art of glassmaking. The bubble captured in each individual piece is hand-made at just the precise moment when the glass is at the correct temperature and consistency. Tapio gives pleasure each time it is used, regardless of the time or situation. A gentle and eternal reminder for us to enjoy each fleeting moment.
Tapio Wirkkala's style is considered to be synonymous with Finnish design. Using his mastery of glass-blowing methods, he captured a single air bubble inside the heavy stem of the Tapio glasses. The bubble now represents the unique, distinctive style, which has become his trademark.
