Professor Oiva Toikka is one of the great names of Finnish design. For over 35 years, he has created the Birds collection. His limitless imagination and knowledge of glass made it possible to create small miracles of life, sought after by collectors globally. Each bird is individually mouth blown, thus unique.
Toikka’s visions are still brought to life by craftsmen at the Nuutajärvi factory in Finland, where the Iittala glass workshops are located. Each bird is signed as proof of authenticity.
Oiva Toikka has enjoyed an international career and received numerous awards, among them are the Lunning Prize, Pro Finlandia Medal, World Glass Now 85 Award, Kaj Franck Design Prize and the Prince Eugen Medal.
