The sleek, smooth lines and soft colors of the Sky Curlew create a bird that is seems as light as the sky itself. The Sky Curlew has a long, thin beak and a narrow tail to go along with the silvery luster on its soft blue body.
Oiva Toikka’s imaginative, rich and bold glass art sets him apart from the streamlined aesthetic of Nordic design, making him one of the greatest names in Finnish glass. These glass birds are Toikka’s best-known works. Birds have been a source of inspiration to him for over 30 years. Each glass bird is individually handmade at Iittala’s sister factory in Nuutajãrvi, Finland.
