About Oiva Toikka
Oiva Toikka 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 seen in every Finnish glass bird he creates, often deviating from the traditional clean-lined puritanism of Finnish design aesthetics. Touch of Finland flew Oiva to Marquette, MI to attend FinnFest 1996 & 2006. The iittala collections: Birds by Toikka
, Kastehelmi Dewdrop
and Ultima Thule
feature Toikka's work.
