From the Finnish word for sky or heaven, himmeli have long been used to celebrate the beginning of Winter Solstice, as well as to bestow good wishes for the future.
This season, we've been admiring a modern take on this Scandinavian holiday classic: brass himmelis by Hruskaa. As much sculpture as planter, a golden prism provides a bit of holiday sparkle all year long.
Above: Viewed from the bottom, this larger Brasss Himmeli Prism No. 2 measures 7.5 inches by 10.75 inches; $49.
Above: Hruskaa's mid-century style wreath is adorned with just a small bit of greenery for the holidays; Large Brass Himmeli Wreath; $185.
