As they are in nature, the Uhuu owl is large, breathtaking, and commanding attention. The piece is made of beautiful marbled brown glass, with dots of gold interspersed throughout the body adding texture and movement . A perfect piece of art to be perched high and center for all to see. Uhuu seems to be aware he is something special - it's in the eyes.
Sand, soda, lime and fire. In the heart of the hot shop, in a fiery kiln, elements melt to create red-hot glass mass. A skilled hand grabs a pipe, lifts a gather of glass out of the oven, and starts working on it: calmly, phase by phase. Twirl, lift, blow - a small miracle takes place: the unique idea of an artist appears in the mass. At the Iittala glass factory in Nuutajarvi, a mellenia-old tradition of glassmaking is strongly alive. This is the birthplace of Iittala's jewels - the glass birds..
