  • Q & A
In modern literature, Ultima Thule is used to reference the furthest possible place in the world. Tapio Wirkkala’s Ultima Thule glassware similarly references the icy cold reaches of Scandinavia and the distinct expressive power of Finnish glass. Designed in 1968, Wirkkala’s Ultima Thule contributed to iittala’s national breakthrough and remains a distinctive iittala design. This set of two dessert bowls is perfect for presenting nuts, candies, fruit and more.The Ultima Thule footed dessert bowls have textured sides that reference the northern icy terrain of Scandinavia. The unique texture of the glass is created by a time-laboring technique that is created by the molten glass burning the surface of the wooden molds.

I received one of these bowls as part of iittala's A Toast to Us gift set. I can definitely see how a set of these would come in handy. The bowl is just the right size for nuts, candy, etc.

Small, pretty bowls
August 30, 2012
These bowls look lovely with sorbet or mixed fruit. I like that they are shorter - not only does that make for a nice presentation, but since they are smaller than American dessert bowls, a proper portion size looks more full in these.

I've also used these for vegetable relishes or small salads, such as tomato basil and cucumber dill salads, and they work very well for individual servings.
