Toikka Bird Scarlet Tanager
Oiva Toikka, 1972
Ovia Toikka's iconic collection of Iittala Birds first took flight back in 1972. The collection embodies a rich fusion of glass-making traditions and would not have been possible without Toikka's hands-on approach at the glassworks and his keen understanding of each employees's skills. Drawing from nature and his passion for art glass, Toikka has created more than 500 birds in the last forty years. These lovely little creatures are individually mouth-blown making them a unique treasure in homes, offices or any other space where they nest.
