Toikka's Mediator Dove is a universal symbol of peace that strikes a harmonious balance between simplicity and beautiful design. Her elegant body is made entirely of translucent glass covered with soft, wavy ridges that resemble feathers.
Finnish design pioneer Oiva Toikka’s iconic collection of Iittala glass birds first took flight in 1972. Combining his passion for nature and blown glass art, each bird is unique down to the minute detail. This makes every bird a truly 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 hands-on-approach with his team of master craftsmen.
