Visionary Oiva Toikka’s iconic collection of Iittala glass birds first took flight in 1972. Nature and Toikka’s passion for blown glass art gives every bird unique details that make it a truly one of a kind art object. Handcrafted and mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory, the Birds by Toikka collection embodies a rich fusion of glassmaking traditions and Toikka’s hands-on-approach with his team of master craftsmen. Birds by Toikka Barn Owl is a symbol of wisdom and good fortune. His vivid colours come from the glass itself, not from paint. Filigree tape has been used to create the bird’s rich plumage.
