We’ve been keeping a keen eye on this fox since it was first showcased by iittala in 2014. The series of Vulpes has only been available at iittala’s flagship store at Esplanadi in Helsinki. Now 2 of the 11 designs have been released for sale worldwide.
Created in collaboration between Finnish designer Klaus Haapaniemi and the master glass craftsmen at the Nuutajärvi glassworks, the creation of each piece is a technical process, using hot and cold glasswork techniques.
These unique sculptures are highly collectable, coming individually numbered in a set of 1000. Haapaniemi’s love of animals, especially foxes, can be seen in his other designs such as the Taika and Tanssi series of dinnerware, also by iittala.
