Iittala Oiva Toikka Art Glass Sculpture. Signed on the bottom Oiva Toikka Nuutajärvi. Scarlet Tanager (Fallingwater Red). 7″L X 4″ H. Oiva Toikka (born 1931) is a Finnish glass designer. Born in Karelia, he is renowned for his designs for glassware for Iittala the Finnish design company. Originally trained in ceramics, he took up glass design later in life. Along with his designs for glassware, Toikka is most known since 1973 for his designs for the Iitala glass birds series. Toikka’s designs are executed at the glass factory at Nuutajarvi. The Fallingwater Red is based on the adult male Scarlet Tanager. This striking songbird is frequently seen as they slowly and deliberately seek out beetles and caterpillars high in the dense tree canopy surrounding Fallingwater. As always the real bird is just a starting point for Oiva Toikka. The Fallingwater Red is strongly stylized using the highest craftmanship in glassmaking to give an impression of the living bird. Each bird is signed with the name of the artist, name of the producer – iittala and of course the name of Fallingwater. Each bird is also numbered and there is only a limited edition of birds, 2500 pcs. All of the Toikka birds are highly collected, individually made, mouth-blown pieces of art. Each bird is handmade at iittalas famous glassworks in Nuutajärvi, Finland and carries a mark ensuring authenticity. These birds are great gifts for bird-lovers and those who appreciate mouth-blown glass art. ADD ME TO YOUR FAVORITE SELLERS LIST & CHECK BACK OFTEN!
