      Imagination to Creation: Oiva's Birds

      Finnish glassmaking lands in Corning! The Corning Museum of Glass is excited to once again host guest glassmakers Helena Welling and Juha Saarikko for the fourth Imagination to Creation: Oiva’s Birds. Both gaffers are visiting from the Iittala factory in Finland for a celebration of renowned designer Oiva Toikka’s glass birds. Visitors can watch their demos at The Studio Hot Shop September 27 through 29.
      Glass birds made during the demos will be available for purchase (if they are premium quality) on site through a random lottery. Birds will be available online after on-site purchasing concludes.
      Since the first birds entered production in 1972, Birds by Toikka is an international institution offering collectors and enthusiasts hundreds of stunning objects to acquire. When asked about his fascination with birds, Oiva Toikka always answers that the birds' fluid form is ideally suited to representation in glass.
      Browse the full collection of Iittala birds at The Shops.
