The tealight Kastehelmi Votive holders first introduced in 1964 Iittala are now legendary. While they were a real revolution in glass production back then, they have now matured into classics.
The Kastehelmi Votive s of Iittala unite two elements: water and fire. The word castehelmi means dewdrop in Finnish. The hot flame and the cool dew drops create wonderful reflections emanating from this mood light. Thus the Kastehelmi Votive lanterns became one of the most successful series of Iittala , until 1988 the production was stopped.
Oiva Toikka tried in the 60s to find a method to hide the seams in pressed glass. This is how he came up with the idea of placing small drops of glass on the seams. His experiment evolved into a completely new design that was reissued from Iittala scratch. The Kastehelmi Votive s from Oiva Toikka are available in many atmospheric colours.
