Tamara Aladin will always be remembered for her vast array of 'hooped' vases produced throughout the 1960's and 70's at Riihimäki, Finland. These pieces were not only a commercial success, but they greatly influenced the aesthetics of domestic glassware during the mid-20th Century. 

This olive green 'Kielo' vase perfectly encapsulates the joy of the 1970's and the playful informality of the era's aesthetic.

An archetypal example of Tamara Aladin's much-loved work, this vase was handmade in around 1974. The sculptural object is made up of two curved cones, with a ribbed band at the waist. The name 'Kielo' translates from Finnish as 'Lily of the Valley' with the fluted cones being Aladin's stylised representation of the scented woodland flower.
