Description
Light brown with stippled texturing, Toikkas Tilda bird is simply beautiful. The light stippling technique is the result of an accident: Nuutajrvi workers noticed that dirt from the molds left light grey markings on the glass. Toikka, being the innovative designer he is, embraced this accident and incorporated it into the design of Tilda. Dirt was added to a spikey mold to give the bird its distinctive look and texture.
