Walking down a street in Finland on the evening of December 6th, you’ll see a flickering glow from the windows of each home. It’s a tradition that dates back to the 1920s as a silent protest against Russian oppression. Two candles were placed in windows to let Finnish soldiers know that the house was safe shelter from the Russian military. While there is no longer a need for this secret signal today, the practice lives on a century later in Finland to celebrate Finnish independence; but you too can join in the tradition wherever you are.

A flickering tealight will be even more enchanting behind the rain-hued glass of this candle holder. 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. Beautifully boxed, it makes an excellent gift in addition to ambiance for your own home this season.

Texture plays a big role in Wirkkala's creative portfolio. His 1952 "Tapio" glassware experiments with air ... More Tapio Wirkkala

Peaceful lighting
Various ittala tea light holders are scattered throughout our home. Before guests arrive I light the candles based on where folks will gather. Trust me, guests settle in, take a breath and stay. Days or nights when I'm alone - I often do the same.
ProsCan be used year round.
