Professor Oiva Toikka’s (1931 - 2019) boundless inspiration and imagination finds expression in his glass birds. Toikka’s glass art deviates from the streamlined aesthetic of Nordic design. The stunning Green Tanager is a collectible that will bring you joy year after year!
Every bird is a unique mouthblown art piece. Every glass bird of the collection is free-blown in Iittala glass factory in Iittala Village, Finland.
The collection embodies a rich fusion of glassmaking traditions and would not have been possible without Toikka's hands-on-approach at the glassworks and his keen understanding of each employee's skills. Drawing from nature and his passion for art glass, Toikka has created more than 500 birds in the last 40 years.
