The surface of the Kastehelmi votive seems to sparkle, mimicking the sheen of tiny dew drops that can be seen along stalks of grass and other plants on early summer mornings. Beautiful reflections are created around the votive when there is a light inside.

The Finnish word “kastehelmi” means “dewdrop,” which refers to the rings of small glass beads that give each piece in the Iittala Kastehelmi collection its distinct character. Originally designed by Oiva Toikka in 1964, the Kastehelmi series was relaunched in 2010.

The idea of using droplets of glass as decoration came to Oiva Toikka when he was thinking of ways to hide the joint marks left by the production process. The result was Iittala Kastehelmi, which features rings of tiny glass bubbles that extend outwards from the centre of each piece. Today, as then, Iittala Kastehelmi is one of the most beloved series in the Iittala range.

Delicate and as fresh as a dewy Scandinavian morning, the Iittala Kastehelmi collection brings a bit of the outdoors into any space. Available in a fresh range of colours inspired by nature, Iittala Kastehelmi is the perfect addition to any home.

The glass votives combine two elements: water and fire. The beautiful votives are available in a broad range of colours.
