Another brilliant creation from Toikka Glass Birds. An extended clear glass body is beautifully wrapped in black ribbons in an intricate woven pattern that illustrates the steady hand and strong attention to detail of the master glassblowers at iittala. Fiskariina has a split beak with a metallic appearance. An elegant addition to an already brilliant collection.
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.
