Finnish design visionary Oiva Toikka’s iconic collection of Iittala glass birds took flight in 1972.. Combining his passion for nature and blown glass art, Toikka adds unique details that give each bird its own personality.

The collection embodies a rich fusion of glassmaking traditions and Toikka’s hands-on-approach with his team of master craftsmen. Birds by Toikka Little Tern is a lively, joyous soprano.
