Legendary designer Oiva Toikka’s glass birds took flight in 1972 at the Nuutajärvi glass factory. In 2014 the production of the series was transferred to the Iittala Glass Factory, where Toikka continued his close collaboration with the glassblowers. Inspired by nature and Toikka’s passion for blown glass art, every 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 Mari is a long-beaked bird who glows in transparent yellow glass. Her hollow dome displays valuable treasures. She’s also petite enough to sit inside her mother, Anna.
