Birds by Toikka
Oiva Toikka (1931-2019) is one of the greatest names in Finnish design. His iconic collection of Birds by Toikka first took flight back in 1972 at the Nuutajärvi glass factory with the creation of his small glass Flycatchers. Since then hundreds of new birds have joined the flock. 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. Today, each glass bird is handcrafted and mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory.

Oiva Toikka is one of the greatest names of Finnish design. His iconic collection of glass birds first took flight in 1972 at the Nuutajärvi glass factory. Created in close collaboration with the glassblowers, the collection combined Toikka’s passion for nature and blown glass art. In 2014 the production of the Birds by Toikka series was transferred to the Iittala Glass Factory, where Toikka continued his close partnership with the team. Each bird has its own personality making it a truly one of a kind art object. Handcrafted and mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory, the collection embodies a rich fusion of glassmaking traditions. Birds by Toikka Anna features a bottomless, hollow dome shape that gives shelter to her chick, Mari, and other valuable treasures. Her transparent copper colour reflects light beautifully.
