    Like his annual bird, the annual egg embodies designer Oiva Toikka’s boundless creativity, his passion for blown glass art and the rich glassmaking traditions of the Iittala Glass Factory in Finland.

    Each art object is individually handmade and mouthblown in Finland. Similar to the annual bird, the annual egg is made of radiant amethyst colour that transforms from blue to vibrant purple depending on the light.

    Every bird and its egg are unique art objects. An elegant home decoration that makes a precious gift.

    Size: H 13 cm, W 9 cm.
