Beautifully shaped vase, which is usually credited to Erkkitapio Siiroinen. Designed in the 1970s.
The pattern number is on the base as well as the acid stamped logo for Riihimaki Lasi Oy.
Its shape often gives it the name ‘Rocket Vase’. But is more likely influenced by the natural shape hand-blown glass forms on the blowpipe in the glass blowing process
It is also heavily influenced by the work of Kaj Franck, who Erkkitapio studied under at art school.
It is a particularly modernist form. Devoid of decoration, which is usually part of so much of his oeuvre.
A lovely authentic piece.
