iittala Ultima Thule Clear Candle Holder

  • Q & A
Flickering candlelight will be even more enchanting behind the clear glass of this votive. In modern literature, Ultima Thule is used to reference the furthest possible place in the world. Tapio Wirkkala’s 1968 Ultima Thule glassware similarly references the icy cold reaches of Scandinaiva and the distinct expressive power of Finnish glass. This beautiful texture is achieved through a time-laboring technique, in which the molten glass burns the surface of the wooden molds.

First founded as a glassworks company in 1881, iittala is now a leading company in modern Finnish design producing a range of dinnerware, glassware and art pieces.

This is a gorgeous votive holder. There's a lot of detail to it. It's so versatile , too. It is darling on a winter - themed table , but it works well in the summer as well. It's well - made.

I love the Ultima Thule collection, even while living away from Finland and any kind of cold weather in Los Angeles, every time I look at it it reminds me of winter and home. 100% recommend it

I have been collecting Ultima Thule for years and have tried using some of the glasses for votive holders, but this is just the right size. I will probably use it primarily with battery-operated votives, as i don't always trust myself with actual flame, so that means i can use it in places where a real votive might be a problem.
  • Nice size and weight, not likely to tip over.

I bought these for a Lord of the Rings/Hobbit themed birthday party, thinking they looked woodsy. They do, especially winter woods, especially ancient winter woods. I'll continue to use them for winter arrangements--Christmas, midwinter, late winter. They have a far-away fairy tale look. "Once upon a bitter cold wintertime..."
  • Not sure what it is but there is something 1950s/outdated looking about them too. Perhaps it's the squatty, stunted dimension that makes them cartoonish.

These little votives are beautiful offering a nice frosted glow when candles are lit. They are a nice addition to my Ultima Thule dinnerware. I highly recommend buying these quality votives ... you’ll not be disappointed!

Beautiful miniature of my Thule bowl!
February 25, 2018
I have a few Thule items handed down from my parents and have fond memories of them from my childhood. This little votive holder is an exact miniature of the lovely Thule bowl in my living room. I have mixed it in among my other Iittala candle holders, and it makes for a very pretty display. Great price for a little work of glass art (and beautiful at night with a lit votive inside!).

Like all of Tapio Wirkkala's Ultima Thule works of art, the clear candle holders are beautiful, well designed and have a special place in my home. My thought was as a Christmas decoration with red tea lights but am enjoying them with white and yellow tea lights as well. I highly recommend these candle holders.
