Finland has nearly 190,000 lakes, and inland bodies of water account for 10 percent of the national territory. The country is called “the land of a thousand lakes.” The irregularly shaped glass receptacle in the image was designed by Finnish design brand Iittala, and is meant to bring a lake into a user’s home. The brand was as a glassworks founded in a small town near Helsinki. Its products have flowing lines and graceful curves, and nearly every Finnish household has Iittala's products. Iittala’s iconic products are the Aalto Vase and the Birds by Toikka collection. It takes a temperature of 1,100 degrees Celsius, nearly 30 hours, and 12 complicated work stages to produce a single Aalto Vase, while the birds are mouth-blown by highly experienced artisans. Both fully display the limpidity and luminosity found within the Finnish Arctic Circle.
