About Glass Blowing at iittala Glassworks

Each Toikka bird is handcrafted and mouthblown by iittala's team of master blowers at its factory in Finland. It takes expertise and teamwork to create a single bird, and this collaboration is what drew Oiva Toikka to the medium of glass. Because of their handcrafted nature, each Toikka bird is a unique piece of art; no two are exactly alike. View pictures of the glassblowing process below.
