iittala bird by Toikka Grey Dove - FinnFest 2018 Bird *
DESIGNER: Oiva Toikka
Grey Dove - FinnFest 2018 Bird Only 300 of the FinnFest 2018 Bird Grey Dove have been made, making it a must-have keepsake for fans of Finnish design. Each has been handcrafted and mouthblown by iittala's master blowers in Finland to be unique pieces of commemorative art. For the first time in 35 years of the celebration, FinnFest 2018 took place in Finland instead of North America. There in Tampere, the real-life grey stock doves which served as inspiration for Toikka were likely visitors of the event grounds as well. This dove has a grey, translucent body that is decorated with bronze luster flakes that iridescently change color as the light hits them. The base has been laser engraved to read "O. Toikka IITTALA FinnFest 2018," ensuring authenticity and reminding you of its meaningful origin. Add this special edition design to your growing glass bird collection or gift it to a loved one who can continue or begin their own Finnish flock.
