sorry, can't help specifically with this piece, but think you're correct with the Nuutajarvi signature.             This might be a design post Pina & Vigier's (2002), and could of course be very recent, but really not sure.          This one doesn't look to be in 'Smoke & Ice'.
Can't seem to match the designer's name with the following, but you may have better luck, since you have the piece in your hand ....

Have just seen an image in Finnish glass lives 4 which shows an item of glass very similar to yours.
It is by Heikki Orvola 1996, described as fixed blown, sandblasted, cast and polished.
Hope this is of some use.
