Oiva Toikka continues to impress with his astounding ability to produce some of the worlds most beautiful glass art. The Birds collection are Toikka's best-known works and are highly sought after as gifts and collectors pieces. More than just art, Birds is a collection of stories, with each piece as individual as Finland itself.
