Birds by Toikka Whip-poor-will 85 x 130 mm

Oiva Toikka

Design pioneer Oiva Toikka’s iconic collection of Iittala glass birds took flight in 1972. Combining Toikka’s passion for nature and blown glass art, each bird is truly a one of a kind art object. Handcrafted and mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory, the collection embodies a rich fusion of glassmaking traditions and Toikka’s partnership with his team of master craftsmen. Birds by Toikka Whip-Poor-Will features a long, thin beak and a short tail. The dark green stripes that wrap around his sleek shape are meant to resemble the camouflage plumage of the real whip-poor-will but this striking bird can’t help standing out.
