This beautiful and classic collection of cocktail glasses has rocky bottoms and thin walls that reflect the lucid qualities of ice.Wirkkala's themes are derived from observations of nature, like ice formations and movements of water. Named after a fell covered perpetually by snow, Wirkkala's Gaissa glasses powerfully illustrate the artist's master and command of his craft and the powerful force the arctic climate serves as his inspiration.

I have been buying this glassware for 20 years since I saw them on a trip to Finland. I hope they never out of production. The service from FinnStyle was perfect.

I had seen these at the Arabia iittalia store when visiting Helsinki this summer and loved them. I like how the bottom reminds one of ice. I purchased them for my husband's birthday. They arrived in perfect shape, just as I remembered them, and at the expected delivery time.

I love my Iittala Gaissa Highball glasses for their classic Finnish "iceberg" look that's delicate but hard-wearing. The hand-feel on the bottom is a delight, and they go with all table decor. I use them for water at each place setting.

We love this style: classy and goes well with formal and informal table settings. They are vulnerable to breakage when being filled with ice cubes from our refrigerator door dispenser.

Beautiful glass ware, I have not found the same quality in any other glass ware. Gin and tonic at its best in a Gaissa Highball glass.

Gaissa Highball glasses

A couple years ago, we purchased a few of these for beverages when we have guests. After finding we need more and loving the design, I was pleased to find I could still add to our set. They are a perfect size for cold party beverages and even milk or water on a dinner table and the design is modern and striking. We've had many compliments on them!
