Oiva Toikka is one of the legendary names of Finnish design. His iconic collection of Iittala glass birds took flight in 1972. Taking inspiration from nature and Toikka’s passion for blown glass art, each bird has its own personality which makes it a truly one of a kind art object. Handmade and mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory, the collection embodies a rich fusion of glassmaking traditions and Toikka’s hands-on-approach with his team of master craftsmen. Birds by Toikka Uhuu is a big, whimsical bird. He wears a fun, playful expression that features vibrant orange eyes and a thick stern brow. His oblong body is made of marbled brown glass.
