■ Product introduction It is a phantom masterpiece crocus of Finland's leading tableware manufacturer ARABIA. Crocus is a kind of iris flower. There are two types of crocus canisters, black and white and color, but this is the black and white version. Crocus is a series that was manufactured for only two years from 1978 to 1979. In recent years, reprints of mugs, bowls and 17 cm plates have been produced.

However, the reproduction version is made in Thailand and has a sweet form, and the canister, cup & saucer, teapot, etc. seen in the original Crocus are not reproduced. It is a popular item even in the home country, and it is becoming rare to see it in the vintage market. Due to its rarity, the market price is high. Canister lids are often out of stock, so it is relatively rare to have them all.

Esteri Tomura has a congenital dwarf disease and initially majored in pottery at Aalto University of Arts in Helsinki, but due to physical and physical reasons she was unable to handle clay satisfactorily. Therefore, he gave up the path of pottery and sought his own expertise in design. After joining ARABIA, he will hone his skills as a pattern designer with Laija Uosikkinen, who became a lifelong friend. While Uosikkinen preferred abstract and geometric patterns, Tomra seeks the origin of his designs in Finnish flowers, which were the original scenery of his childhood. Tomra, who created masterpieces in spite of physical handicaps, has something in common with Birger Kaipiainen, who designed the timeless classic Paratiisi while suffering from polio.
