Decorative Objects iittala BR005303 Birds by Toikka Rusee Grebe Figurine Sand, soda, lime and fire. In the heart of the hot shop, ...in a fiery kiln, elements meld to create the red-hot glass mass. A skilled hand grabs a pipe, lifts a gather of glass out of the oven, and starts working 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 Nuuttajarvi, a millennia-old tradition of glassmaking is strongly alive. This is the birthplace of iittala's jewels - the glass birds. Each bird is mouth-blown, and three to five craftsmen work on each bird as it is being produced resulting in each bird being one of a kind. The birds are constructed entirely of glass; their vivid colors come from the glass, not from paint. Oiva Toikka explores the opportunities offered by glass, exploiting the renowned iittala skill with color, and the transparency and opacity of glass. There is great virtuosity in the way filigree and filigree tape have been used to depict the bird's plumage. In his birds, Oiva Toikka uses glass like a painter uses his palette. Features: -Limited production of 2000 birds.-Individually handmade.-Please Note: Due to the nature of hand-blown glass, actual color may vary slightly from the colors pictured.-Product Type: Figurine.-Collection: Birds by Toikka.-Style: Contemporary.-Theme: Animal.-Subject: Home decor and furniture.-Finish: Multi-colored.-Hand-Made: Yes.-Distress... read more
