Tauno Wirkkala for Humppila Lookalike ?
« on: November 16, 2009, 02:52:17 PM »
... this one reminds me of the vases of Tauno Wirkkala for Humppila but is less detailed.
Nice rough "icy" look to the outside and smooth on the inside. 15 cm. high and about 22 cm. in diameter (top).

Who knows where these come from ?

Very reminiscent of Lasisepat but Hoganas also did some similar ice/bark designs too.
