A new take on Taika, the iittala Siimes Dinnerware gives us a fresh glimpse into designer Klaus Haapaniemi's enchanting world of whimsy. Haapaniemi designed Taika (Magic) in 2009, and in celebration of the ten year anniversary comes Siimes. Meaning Shade in Finnish, Siimes refers to the place our forest friends stop to rest from the sun. Deer, wood grouses, and hedgehogs are the new characters to join the owls and foxes of the Taika collection. The brighter colors bring a spring-like feel to the table and are easily combined with other iittala Dinnerware collections like Teema. Made from vitreous porcelain, this bowl is microwave, oven, freezer, and dishwasher safe for convenient everyday use, despite looking like china reserved for special occasions. With Siimes, every day is an occasion worthy of a setting that tells a special story. Also called a deep plate, the coupe bowl is perfect for pastas, soups, stews, curries,
Care: Freezer, microwave, oven and dishwasher safe

Excited to have hedgehogs added to my collection. I've only had them for a week, but it seems like the same quality as the other iittala pieces I have. They are larger than my old bowls and hold more so servings look a bit smaller. They coordinate fine with the rest of the Taika pattern. Arrived quickly and safely packed in biodegradable peanuts!

SIIMES pattern is great fun with my collection of older Arabia RUSKA! I started loving RUSKA in 1965, and have never stopped. These new patterns seem designed to look outstanding with it, having just the right touch of brown and gloss to make a perfect marriage.
ProsSizes are very useful to combine with other older designs by ARABIA.
I love these bowls
