  • Q & A
2015 marks the 100th anniversary since Tapio Wirkkala’s birth, and this set of two dewdrop-kissed plates is the perfect commemoration and celebration of his life and works.

Designed in 1968, the Ultima Thule Glassware similarly references the icy cold reaches of Scandinavia. The unique melting texture of these pieces are achieved through specialized molds, the first of which were made by Wirkkala himself.

I bought 10 dinner plates in March 2015. I assumed that they would be microwave safe since they are glass but unfortunately one of my plates broke in half in the microwave. Are they not actually microwave safe?
1 Answer
Hello, They are not recommended to be used in the microwave - only dishwasher safe.

Question regarding the Ultima Thule Dinner Plates- in the photo these plates appear to have a dark colored border, and not the all-glass plates of the past. Can you clarify this; i.e., are the plates completely glass, or do they have a colored/dark border around the plates? Thank you for your time and help!
1 Answer
The plates are all glass. This is a shadow in the picture due to the small, lipped curve the plates have.
