A Miniature vase by Annikki Hovisaari for Arabia, Finland, C.1960.

Annikki Hovisaari began her career in Arabia’s department of industrial art in 1949, where she predominantly designed decorative items for large scale production. She designed a small amount of handmade items too, including a series of delightful miniature vases with undulating forms.

This vase is part of this series, and features an ochre glaze with tar-like areas of dark brown. The attractive shape takes inspiration from ancient Chinese ceramics; Hovisaari gently exaggerates the form of an ancient 'Meiping' (plum) vase, resulting in a delightful & collectable example of Modernist Nordic design.
