Iittala Birds by Toikka

Birds By Toikka Blue shorebird 230x130mm ultramarine blue

The colourful and elaborate Birds by Toikka are a testament to the creativity of professor Oiva Toikka and the craftsmanship of Iittala's glassblowers. The glass birds produced at the Iittala Glass Factory in Finland combine Toikka's deep relationship with nature with his passion for art glass. Each glass bird has its own personality and is as individual as each of us.

The Shorebird in ultramarine blue has a deep blue body, bright tail and head, creating a beautiful detail to the home interior. Part of a special collection, the Shorebird is available only at our own webstore and our United States retailers.

Birds by Toikka

Oiva Toikka (1931-2019) is one of the greatest names in Finnish design. His iconic collection of Birds by Toikka first took flight back in 1972 at the Nuutajärvi glass factory with the creation of his small glass Flycatchers. Since then hundreds of new birds have joined the flock. 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. Today, each glass bird is handcrafted and mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory.

Iittala's designer Oiva Toikka

Oiva Toikka

Oiva Toikka (1931-2019) is one of the great personas of Finnish glass design. His imaginative, rich and bold glass art is a departure from mainstream Nordic design. Toikka’s individual style is also evident in the utility objects he creates as they often deviate from the traditional clean-lined puritanism of Finnish design aesthetics. In addition to glass, his artistic activities cover staging, fashion design and plastic interior design elements.

Toikka has designed a range of home products for Iittala with his Annual Cube, Birds by Toikka, Frutta, Flora, Kastehelmi, Oiva Toikka Collection and Tundra Collections.
