Q & A
Boasting the same mosaic motif as the Alder Thrush, the 2014 Annual Egg is a testament to the remarkable craftsmanship the glass blowers at the Nuutajärvi factory in Finland are capable of. The flawlessly formed oval is made from a milky opal glass and sprinkled with vibrant color flakes, some of which are slightly raised to lend it an intriguing texture...Random in size, shape and placement, this complex coloring technique will emphasize the unique nature of these individually mouth-blown jewels. A portion of the freehand flakes are made from an opalescent glass, a reflective material that will beautifully pick up the pigment and movement of its surroundings. With only 750 produced, the numbered Alder Thrush 2014 Annual Egg is an exceptional piece to be pursued by passionate iittala collectors.
The pieces of Oiva Toikka's 2014 collection are individually mouth-blown by the master glassblowers at iittala’s glassworks in Nuutajärvi, Finland. Limited edition, each handcrafted iittala Toikka Alder Thrush Egg is numbered "x/750" and carries the signature “O. Toikka Nuutajärvi 2014” on its base to ensure authenticity.
