Kastehelmi Cake Stand Clear

Origin: Finland

Kastehelmi was one of Toikka’s most popular designs and remained in production until 1988. To celebrate Toikka’s 50 years at Iittala, Iittala has now reintroduced a selection of the most popular pieces in the range.

The idea of using droplets of glass as decoration came to Toikka when he was thinking of ways of covering the joint marks left on the surface of pressed glass pieces by the production process. His experiments with various droplet moulds resulted in a completely new surface structure that highlighted the play of light on the surface and how it reflected. The name he chose - Kastehelmi (Finnish for dewdrop) - was inspired by the lines of dewdrops on grass stems typical of summer mornings.
