Toikka's Birds

A multifaceted Finnish designer, Oiva Toikka is renowned for his bird series manufactured by Iittala.
When asked to define his work, Toikka has said
'Baroque is exactly the right word to describe my work – after all,
one of the word’s original meanings is ”an irregular pearl.'

Of the multitude of birds in the series, I have to say I find the owls irresistible. Big emotional eyes and characteristic quirk.
