Professor Oiva Toikka is one of the great names of Finnish design. The Iittala Birds originated in 1972 with Toikka’s small Flycatchers. Today the collection grows with collectors all over the world who enjoy these art objects as simple reminders of poetry in everyday life. These lyrical creatures are a feat of craftsmanship – each bird is as diverse and individual as those who collect them. Toikka’s visions are still brought to life by craftsmen at the Nuutajärvi factory in Finland, where the Iittala glass workshops have always been located. Each bird is signed “O. Toikka Nuutajärvi” as a proof of authenticity. See all Annual Birds design by Oiva Toikka. Size: 210 x 145mm.
