iittala Toikka Minneapolis Bird

Our city's spirit. Part of the 2016 Bird and the City collection, the iittala Toikka Minneapolis Bird is exclusive to AlwaysMod and select retailers. Only 200 total have been produced, making the numbered special edition a must-have for Toikka collectors or Minneapolis dwellers and lovers. Based in the Minneapolis area, AlwaysMod was honored to provide Oiva Toikka with inspiration to design a glass bird that creatively captures the city's natural beauty.

Windswept lines follow the clear body to symbolize Minneapolis' wintry weather, while a band of green graces the back as an ode to the flowing Mississippi river. True to the water's fluid form, the exact size, shape and placement of this embellishment varies. This holds true for the entire mouth-blown and handcrafted bird, as each one is a unique piece of glass art.
