Ice Ice Baby.

Although it's been a mild winter here in Toronto (and I ain't complaining) I've got ice on my mind. Off-late I've been obsessed with mid-century nordic glass, particularly those made by Iittala and Kosta Boda. It's truly inspiring to discover master designers like Tapio Wirkkala, Oiva Toikka, Erik Hoglund, and Bertil Vallien. They are extremely prolific designers truly interested in pushing the boundaries of their craft.
