Oiva Toikka's iconic bird collection first took flight in 1972. Iittala's world famous Birds by Toikka collection has over 500 handcrafted species that were born from the artist's unique imagination. Combining his passion for nature and blown glass art, each bird is unique. This makes every Finnish glass bird a truly one of a kind piece of art. Handcrafted and mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory, the collection embodies a rich fusion of glassmaking traditons.
Today, collecting iittala Toikka birds has become an international activity with collectors tracking down rarities and discussing favorites with the same enthusiasm as their real-life equivalents in the ornithological world. Made in Finland.
