Iittala Birds by Toikka – Swan
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.
Design pioneer Oiva Toikka’s iconic collection of Iittala glass birds combine his passion for nature and blown glass art. Each bird is unique down to the minute detail making it 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 partnership with his master craftsmen. Birds by Toikka Whooper Swan is the national bird of Toikka’s native Finland. Her graceful, long-necked design honors Karelia, where the artist was born. The contrast of the snowy white glass body and dark beak enhance the elegant beauty of the bird.
