Finnish design legend Oiva Toikka’s pioneering Kastehelmi collection came from his determination to find a design that would hide joint marks in glass. The groundbreaking result was a distinct pattern featuring circles of raised glass droplets that resemble strings of dewdrops glistening under the morning sun. Kastehelmi (“dewdrop” in Finnish) plays with light, truly bringing out the reflective beauty of the glass. Iittala’s beloved Kastehelmi collection offers a wide range of versatile, tactile pieces that are both functional and decorative. The delicate yet durable clear Kastehelmi bowl is perfect for a hearty breakfast, snacks, sides and displaying candy. Collect a set. Great wedding, birthday, anniversary or housewarming gift idea. Dishwasher safe.
