toikka dotterel bird


Design Oiva Toikka, 1972
Hand blown art glass
Made in Finland by iittala

The Iittala Toikka Bird - Dotterel was created to honor the 2016 FinnFest, which took place on a lavish cruise from Boston to Montreal. The smooth glass has raised detailing to give the bird's plumage a signature texture while the wings are left smooth and translucent. The contrasting blue head and yellow beak are intentionally cocked a little to the side, to portray the bird's trusting disposition. Truly a collector's piece.

From humble beginnings as a small glass factory, today Iittala offers a wide variety of modern Scandinavian housewares that demonstrate the company's commitment to design quality and product longevity. Based in Helsinki, Finland, Iittala continues to make cookware, tableware and other home accessories that are both lovely and useful, based primarily on the forward-thinking philosophies of design icons Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto.
