Ultima Thule is a collection of glasswork, on which you can see the long and hard work, which comes from the perfection of the glass processing technique. The unique effect of the glass and its appearance imitate nature. The shapes differ from piece to piece, depending on how the fluid glass meets the wooden models in the production.
