About Oiva Toikka
Professor Oiva Toikka's surprising and bold glass art deviates from the streamlined aesthetic of Nordic design. An internationally renowned artist, he has won numerous awards in recognition of his consummate artistry, among them Lunning Prize, Pro Finlandia Medal, World Glass Now 85 Award, Kaj Franck Design Prize and the Prince Eugen Medal.
Oiva Toikka's Glass Birds collection is Toikka's best-known tour de force and it is renewed annually. The Birds are highly sought after as gifts and collector's pieces. Each bird is signed "O. Toikka Nuutajärvi" as a proof of authenticity.
