Oiva Toikka Alder Thrush Annual Bird 2014
Oiva Toikka (b.1931) is one of the great personas of Finnish glass design. His imaginative, rich and bold glass art is a departure from mainstream Nordic design. Toikka’s individual style is also evident in the utility objects he creates as they often deviate from the traditional clean-lined puritanism of Finnish design aesthetics.
Birds by Toikka, a series designed for Iittala combines the artist’s limitless imagination with his expertise in the characteristics of glass. The unique and colorful birds, which are all handmade, have become the passion of collector’s worldwide.
A special edition design only in production for one year, the handcrafted iittala Toikka Alder Thrush 2014 Annual Bird is the perfect piece to add to a glass birds collection or to start a new tradition with.
