A large 18.5 cm bowl of masterpiece crocuses from Arabia, a tableware manufacturer representing Finland in Northern Europe. The series name crocus is a kind of iris flower. The designer was Esteri Tomra, who is known for Flora, Warm, Botanica, etc., and is good at incorporating natural flowers into the design. There are three types of Crocus series: black and white version, color version, and black and white gray rim version, but this is the black and white version. Crocus is a product that was manufactured for only two years from 1978 to 1979. In recent years, reprinted bowls have been sold, but the shape is different, and the mouth is along the outward direction, making it a more sophisticated line than the reprinted version. Also, the black and white version has not been reprinted and can only be obtained in vintage.

Born in Helsinki. Her father, who was a university professor, bought a villa in the countryside called Urjalan in the northwestern part of Helsinki. be done. 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.
