Iittala Birds by Toikka – Blue Bird
What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, today celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people’s everyday lives. Iittala believes objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that inspires individual use and expression.
The progressive philosophy of design heroes, Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto, still inspires to keep Iittala forever relevant. They believe in timeless design that will never be thrown away.
Oiva Toikka is one of the greatest names in Finnish design. His iconic collection of Iittala glass birds first took flight in 1972. Inspired by nature and Toikka’s passion for blown glass art, each bird is a unique 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 master craftsmen. Birds by Toikka Baby Bluebird is the life of the party in her translucent blue and white glass. Criss-crossed lines down her body resemble feathers.
