Glass Birds by Toikka

Oiva Toikka’s iconic collection of Iittala Birds began 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.

We carry a great selection of Toikka glass birds in our Pizazz showroom. Please feel free to stop by and check us out in person. We can also take orders over the phone and ship anywhere in North America.
