TAPIO WIRKKALA I am one of the lucky few owning the Pollo Vase by Tapio Wirkkala, one of my absolute favourite contemporary

artist in the world. His work

had exceptional diversity and he left no area of design unexplored. Although his artwork and unique objects can be found in the world’s leading museums, people have used his more anonymous objects for decades. His work ranges from plastic ketchup bottles and metal ware to advanced unique pieces of glass, ceramics and plywood. Although the long time creative director of Iittala, he also designed for other international companies, for example, glass for Venini and ceramics for Rosenthal - like the Pollo vase.

WEST GERMANY West German ceramics were produced by many manufacturers including companies like Otto, Carsens, Bay and Scheurich. A familiar term used when referring to West German pieces is ‘Fat Lava’, derived from the thick glazes used which look as if the vases have lava running down their sides. A collector’s dream, West German ceramics come in many different sizes, forms, colours, glazes, designers and year of make. There’s a design for every personality and the price range varies widely so to me it is very affordable art. They are super easy to decorate your home with and will give it a special touch because every piece is unique, it will be something no one else has.
