Five people from five cities created visuals and described the significant elements of their home cities. The visual inspiration was delivered to Oiva Toikka. The maestro of glass added his limitless imagination and artistic impression to the project, and the outcome is a numbered series of birds that reflect the soul of the respective cities. The shape and the coloring of each bird reflects that of the city, and each is crafted with a variety of glass-blowing techniques that amplify its character.
Seoul is a city divided in two parts, like the bird of the city. The city is both traditional and modern, and the bird's modern traditional reflects the glass sky-scrapers as they meet the city's traditional red, as if the bird was wearing a historical cloak.
