Master Glassblower Kari Alakoski got the idea of River Pearl series as he listened to radio program of how freshwater river mussel is threatened with extinction due to human activities. Alakoski wanted to do something and created beautiful River Pearl series.
Soda bubbles describe a clean free-flowing river flow which is crucial for the species. And you see the pearl which could be inside the mussel.
