Iittala Oiva Toikka Ruby Bird Cranberry Red
Origin: Finland For over 40 years, Oiva Toikka has created the Birds collection. These delightful glass birds are individually mouth-blown glass creations. Like the natural birds they represent, it?s the tiny differences that give each and every glass bird its very own personality. There are currently over 400 birds in the collection. The Ruby bird was originally launched in 1996. In 2014 the red glass colour of the bird has changed to cranberry red. His limitless imagination and knowledge of glass has made it possible to create small miracles of life, sought after by collectors globally. Each bird is individually mouth blown and thus unique, a gift that keeps on giving forever.
Size: H 12.5 cm, L 20 cm.
Oiva Toikka (1931-2019) 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 also evident in the utility objects he creates as they often deviate from the traditional clean-lined puritanism of Finnish design aesthetics. In addition to glass, his artistic activities cover staging, fashion design and plastic interior design elements.
