Professor Oiva Toikka's special seasonal bird, the Reed Warbler reflects summer's spell on us with an innate and enchanting sparkle. The talented team of glassblowers at iittala, Finland use a special texturing technique to create these reflective flakes, which pick up the surrounding movement and pigment but tend to favor jewel tones of blue, purple and green. The transparent glass permanently carries a pink tint, but depending on its backdrop and lighting, it can vary from a soft lilac to a rich rose much like summer sunsets. True to its muse, Reed Warbler has a bulbous head leading to a petite and pointed beak; this forms a translucent teardrop that allows admirers to peer into its stunning glass inner workings. A flat, paddle style tail seems to passionately pull the specks of color in a beautiful blur of windswept motion. Add this special handcrafted creation to your collection of mouth-blown glass birds or present it to someone with the same carefree summer spirit as Reed Warbler; whether gifted or kept, it will be forever loved for its one-of-a-kind beauty.

Made in Finland.

This is Iittala

What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, today celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people's everyday lives. We believe objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that inspires individual use and expression.

As a company based in Finland, where quality, aesthetics and functionality are important values, Iittala believes in interior design that lasts a lifetime. The progressive philosophy of our design heroes, Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto, still inspires us to keep Iittala forever relevant.

We don't just create beautiful objects. We believe in timeless design that will never be thrown away.

Where it all started

The roots of Iittala date back to 1881 when a glass factory was established in a village of the same name in southern Finland.

In its early years Iittala produced blown, pressed, polished, painted and etched glass according to continental models.

In the beginning of the 20th century dinnerware was decorated with a variety of ornaments. Iittala was one of the first companies to make the transition from decorative dinner sets to functional, aesthetically pleasing objects infused with progressive Scandinavian design.
