The Tarmo bird was created for the founder of Finnport, Tarmo Pihlaja. Toikka was commissioned by Tarmo after a visit he made to Thunder Bay in 1995.
Only 300 of these special birds were produced.
Oiva Toikka's first glass bird, Sieppo, was launched in 1972. Nature-inspired glass birds tell of Toikka's boundless imagination and passion for glass art.
Each handcrafted bird has, down to the smallest detail, a unique, unique personality. Handmade Birds by Toikka birds are blown by the iittala glass factory in Finland. Lovely home decoration and a valuable gift.
