The Glass Masters in Finland – from the Lasismi Cooperation, Joonas Laakso, Kaappo Lähdesmäki and Kimmo Reinikka,- are passionate and ambitious professionals working together very closely. Markku Piri wanted to continue the design of the Fontana series with this Lasismi Cooperation Masters, but not in the Muranese Reticello technique (with air bubbles), but with double filigrane structures, without the bubbles. The idea is still the movement of water in a fountain, but the shapes vary. This would be a grand vase, but it doesn’t need flowers to take its place, in the vibrant deep purple.
