He works with glass (iittala), ceramics (Arabia and Rorstrand), cast iron, enamel and textiles (Marimekko). For most of his career Orvola has worked for industry, but for him artworks made of glass, ceramics and textiles are a necessary outlet for his creative energies. A 15-year grant from the State, which he received since the beginning of 1994, has increased his freedom to decide where to apply his energies. The Victoria and Albert Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Stedelijk Museum, the Finnish Glass Museum and the Arabia Museum are only some of the museums that have included Orvola works in their collections. During his career as an industrial designer, Orvola has received e.g. the Kaj Franck prize (1998), which is Finland's most important design award, and the Pro Finlandia medal (1984), among numerous other awards.<br> <b>Material:</b> Vitreous porcelain with dark navy blue semi mat glaze; ovento table, dishwasher-/micro- and freezer safe.<br> <b>Blues</b> serie was in production 1992-1998<br> <b>Source:</b> Graft Design Heikki Orvola, 2000, page 52</font></p><br></div></div><br><div style="text-align: left;"><br> <div style="text-align: center;"><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="1">Pay securely with any major credit card through PayPal!</font><a href="http://www.paypal.com/"> <img style="border: 0px solid ; width: 99px; height: 99px;" src="images/creditcards.gif" alt=""></a></div> </div></td> <td style="height: 450px; vertical-align: top; width: 1000px; text-align: left;"> <div style="margin-left: 0px; width: 700px;" valign="top" align="left"> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,1)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_demitasse_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,2)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_coffeecup_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,3)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_highcup_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,4)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_teacup_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,5)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_sugarbowl_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,6)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_cream_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,7)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_mug_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,8)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_teapot_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,9)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_coffeepot_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,10)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_oval-bowl_sml_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,11)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_soup_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,12)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_muro_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,13)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_bb_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,16)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_oval_dish_lrg_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,14)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_salad_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,15)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_dinner_x.jpg" alt="" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,17)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_eggcup_x.jpg" alt=" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,18)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_platter_x.jpg" alt=" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,19)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_platter_33cm_x.jpg" alt=" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,20)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_auGratin_36_x.jpg" alt=" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,22)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_casserole_2_x.jpg" alt=" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,21)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_casserole_3_x.jpg" alt=" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,23)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_servingbowl_1_x.jpg" alt=" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,24)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_sauceboat_x.jpg" alt=" border="0"></a> <a href="wishlist.html" onmouseover="doTooltip(event,25)" onmouseout="hideTip()"> <img src="arabia_blues/arabia_blues_sml_bowl_x.jpg" alt=" border="0"></a> </div></td></tr></tbody></table><div style="text-align: left;"></div></center></div></body></html>
