Finnish design legend Oiva Toikka’s iconic collection of glass birds took flight in 1972 at the Nuutajärvi glass factory. Created in close collaboration with the glassblowers, the collection combined Toikka’s passion for nature and blown glass art. In 2014 the production of the series was transferred to the Iittala Glass Factory, where Toikka continued his close partnership with the team. Each bird is unique down to the minute detail. This gives every bird its own personality 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 hands-on-approach with his team. Birds by Toikka Kuulas uses a simple rain colored glass to showcase the bird’s plump body. Its flat tail and teardrop head are made of contrasting dark glass.
