No chips, cracks, or damage. Sand, soda, lime and fire. In the heart of the hot shop, in a fiery kiln, elements melt to create red-hot glass mass. A skilled hand grabs a pipe, lifts a gather of glass out of the oven, and starts working on it: calmly, phase by phase. Twirl, lift, blow – a small miracle takes place: the unique idea of an artist appears in the mass. At the Iittala glass factory in Nuutajarvi, a millenia-old tradition of glassmaking is strongly alive. This is the birthplace of Iittala’s jewels – the glass birds. Dimensions – approx 8.5″ x 5″. Mouth Blown – each is unique. The item “Iittala Oiva Toikka Night Tern Glass Bird Rare” is in sale since Saturday, January 06, 2018.
