Oiva Toikka: Bird and the City, Minneapolis
The Minneapolis bird has a green stripe on the back of the twisted and windy decoration of its body, just as the Mississippi River cuts through this city, known for its very Nordic weather conditions.
Oiva Toikka, who has spent over four decades creating nearly 500 beloved handcrafted glass bird species for the beloved Birds by Toikka collection. The collection of 200 numbered birds is crafted in the Iittala glass factory by high-ly skilled art glass teams, who work closely with the beloved Birds by Toikka collection. The first bird to be created from each range will be given to the person who provided the inspiration from the selected cities.
