Iittala Birds by Oiva Toikka

While Iittala is mostly known for their line of the timeless Aalto vases, they also make these great little glass birds. The Bird Collection features different species every year. Designed by Oiva Toikka, the simplicity and smoothness of the forms is contrasted by the detail in the detail and complexity of the glass coloring. The oriole and barn owls are my favorites.
