  • 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.

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 moulds.

Perfect wine glasses

These wine glasses are unique in design (like rain drops on a window) rather than plain glass. The size of the stem is a great fit for a man or woman’s hand.
Finally, these glasses will not break as easily when washed in a dishwasher.

The Ultima Thule Stemmed Red Wine glasses are beautiful and part of a classic collection by Tapio Wirkkala. I gave them as a wedding gift because I have so enjoyed my own Ultima Thule pieces and thought they epitomized the best of Finnish glass.

The Ultima Thule wine glasses are a perfect size for dinner wine. They are easily held, hold just enough, and even look like special occasion glasses. Are quite affordable when purchased on a sale.

I have always admired these glasses and am so glad I finally bought them. They arrived quickly and very well packaged. Although they are expensive, they are very sturdy and should last many years.
  • Can go into the dishwasher. Stems are relatively short, so they are easy to store in a cabinet.

Stemmed red wine glasses
February 6, 2011
I had previously purchased some of these to add to my dishes of the same design and after I found out how versatile the size was for other beverages, I purchased more and love using them. My grandchildren enjoy using them too and I don't worry about breakage as they are a bit heavier than many glasses.
