Oiva Toikka has made several beautiful owls, and Uhuu is by far the largest and most humorous. He is made of marbled brown glass, flecked with vibrant drops of reflective gold. With its large round body and arresting eyes, this unique Toikka bird would be a great addition to any bird or owl collection.
Each glass bird by Oiva Toikka is individually handmade at Iittala’s sister factory in Nuutajãrvi, Finland. Birds have been a source of inspiration to Oiva Toikka for 30 years. This collection of glass birds is Oiva Toikka’s best-known work. Oiva Toikka is one of the greatest names in Finnish glass. His imaginative, rich and bold glass art sets him apart from the streamlined aesthetic of Nordic design.
