Oiva Toikka’s (Iittala / Nuutajärvi) Beautiful Leppärastas /Alder trush. This is Annual bird of 2014. Bird is mouth blowed glass and it has signature of Mr Toikka in its bottom. There is some blurry in the glass on another side of the bird’s head/neck, but it is impossible to have it visible in the picture. Anyway bird is signed, so it is the first class bird.
Oiva Toikka is one of the greatest names in Finnish design. His iconic collection of Iittala Birds by Toikka first took flight back in 1972 with the creation of his small glass Flycatchers. The collection embodies a rich fusion of glassmaking traditions and would not have been possible without Toikka’s hands-on-approach at the glassworks and his keen understanding of each employee’s skills. Drawing from nature and his passion for art glass, Toikka has created more than four hundred birds in the last forty years.
Today, collecting 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. These lovely little creatures are individually mouth-blown making them a unique treasure in homes, offices or any other space where they nest.
