Finnish design pioneer Oiva Toikka's iconic collection of glass birds first took flight in 1972 at the Nuutajärvi glass factory. In 2014 the production of the Birds by Toikka series was transferred to the Iittala Glass Factory, where Toikka continued his close collaboration with the glassblowers. Combining his passion for nature and blown glass art, each bird is unique down to the minute detail making it a one of a kind art object. Mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory, the collection embodies a rich fusion of glassmaking traditions and Toikka's hands-on-approach with his team. Created in a rich shade of vivid green, Birds by Toikka Ibis' underlying opaque glass brings depth to the surface colour, while the transparent layer mimics the play of water on the bird's plumage.
