ARABIA Coralli Creamer
ARABIA Coralli Creamer
It is a creamer of the visionary masterpiece Coralli of Finland's leading ceramic maker ARABIA. The series name Coralli means "coral reef", and the cups are painted with dancing pink coral resembling cherry blossom petals. Laija Uosikkinen, known for Emilia and Kalevala, was in charge of the design. Since Uoshikkinen retired from ARABIA in 1986, this work designed in 1983 will be the last work of her career.
The form design was handled by Ulla Procoppe, who is famous for Lusca and Valencia. Coralli follows the shape of the "S model" of the blockbuster Rusca designed in 1960. The S model is a general term for the form of a series of tableware series such as cups, plates and pots adopted by Rusca as the basic form.
Since the appearance of the Rusca S model, many ARABIA products have been created by adopting the Ruska form for the shape of tableware while changing the surface decoration. Rusca was designed in 1960 and Ura Procoppe died in 1968, so the Corari released in 1983 tells us that Ura Procoppe's design was appreciated for nearly 20 years after his death. The S model is also used in GOG, Cosmos, Fractus, Flora, etc. of Esteri Tomra's work. Because the "same shape" continued to be used, it was called the S-Model, an acronym for Sama (meaning "same" in Finnish).
Coralli has become a masterpiece because of its cherry blossom-like glamor depicting pink coral. The above-mentioned Laija Uosikkinen invented the decoration, but her style sometimes draws things that do not exist in Scandinavia. The idyllic scenery of her masterpiece Emilia is said to depict America, and the Ali series incorporates arabesque patterns from the Islamic world that are not typical of Scandinavia. Coralli's pink coral does not grow naturally in the Atlantic region, which is in Northern Europe, and is found only in areas relatively close to the equator in the Asia-Pacific region such as Japan, the Philippines, and Hawaii. Scandinavian tableware is characterized by incorporating spring-like splendor into its design, which contradicts the coldness of the region.
Coralli is a vintage tableware that is traded at a particularly high price among Arabia products. The reason why it became a phantom masterpiece is because the number of production was small. Northern Europe has been in a long economic recession since the 1980s. The Coralli was launched in 1983, just as the Finnish economy was showing signs of slowing down and ARABIA was reducing production.
Therefore, the number of ARABIA works produced in the 1980s has decreased compared to the works produced in the 1960s and 1970s. This is why Ruscas from the 60s are still relatively cheap to buy, while newer Coraris are very expensive for the same shape. It is the same reason that earplates such as Kalevala are more expensive in the new era.
