  1. Is the Bird by Toikka durable?
  2. The Bird by Toikka is an extremely durable and tough product, as it is made of glass which is one of the most durable man-made materials available. The figurines by Toikka are renowned for their distinctive, sturdy construction which includes a good deal of humor in its design. This ensures that the product will last for many years to come, making it an ideal choice for those looking for a long lasting piece of art.
  3. Are the materials used by the Bird by Toikka’s collection natural?
  4. The materials used by the Bird by Toikka’s collection are not natural, but instead are a combination of glass and ceramic. The glass is hand-blown from molten sand, which gives it a unique, organic shape and texture. The ceramic pieces in the collection have been produced using traditional methods such as pottery and kiln firing to ensure that each piece has its own unique character.
  5. What makes the unique color of the Birds by Toikka Anna?
  6. The unique color of the Birds by Toikka Anna glassware is created by the combination of several different oxide additives that are used in its manufacture. Specifically, cobalt and manganese oxides are combined to produce a bright blue hue, while copper and cadmium sulfide give an iridescent red-violet finish to the glass. The exact ratios and types of these oxide additives vary depending on the particular piece being made, creating a truly unique look for each one.
  7. What is the glassblowing technique used to make the Birds by Toikka Anna?
  8. The glassblowing technique used by Toikka Anna to make her Birds series of glassware is an ancient method known as 'flameworking'. This method involves heating bits of colored glass in a flame, then blowing air through a pipe while shaping the molten glass into the desired form. The final step requires cooling and polishing the piece until it has acquired its signature sheen. In order to achieve this level of detail and precision, Toikka Anna's work often takes many hours or even days to complete. This time-consuming process is what gives each bird its unique character and makes them so sought after by collectors around the world.
  9. Is the Birds by Toikka Anna safe around kids?
  10. Yes, Birds by Toikka glass sculptures are generally safe around children as long as you take reasonable precautionary measures. These include placing the sculpture in an area that is not easily accessible to children and securely fastening it to a wall or table with museum wax or other suitable adhesives.

        Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

        take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

        Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.

        He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.

        Great range of products.

        Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.

        Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

        Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

        Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

        We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

        We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.

        Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.

        Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.

        Highly recommend!

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

        Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

        Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.

        Easily recommended.

        Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

        Great products - really pleased with my order.

        So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.

        Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

        Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.

        Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

        Would definitely buy from Olson and Baker again.

        It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.

        I can’t recommend highly enough.

        The service is superb and the website is so intuitive! 10 out of 10! :D Lee

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

        Thank you

        First class service.

        The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.

        Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.

        Definitely recommend and would use again.

        Thanks! Angela

        Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.

        I would definitely buy from them again.
