Museum of Glass 2015 & 2016 Birds
In partnership with the Museum of Glass, GlassBirds.com is excited to offer this exclusive selection of birds.
In 2015, iittala glassblowers Helena Welling and Arto Lahtinen visited the Museum of Glass's hot shop in Tacoma, Washington to create newly inspired variations of birds designed by Oiva Toikka. In 2016, Welling returned with iittala glassblower Juha Saarikko. During these events, glassblowers are able to take more liberties in color than during production in Finland.
It is a rare opportunity for collectors to acquire one-of-a-kind pieces with a special story and a unique take on Toikka's designs. Each is hand-etched with "MOG IITTALA 2015" or "MOG IITTALA 2016" on the base to ensure authenticity and remind you of its origin.These birds do not come in iittala boxes and the bird pictured is the bird you will receive. First come, first serve. Our system does not automatically mark items out of stock, but availability will be confirmed at checkout.Interested in seeing birds like this made?
