The distinctive calls of the Curlew echo across the Finnish wheat fields all day. Designer Oiva Toikka captured its unique beauty with this stunning pattern of grey weaving through its dark maroon body. The Curlew is an individually handmade, mouth blown glass art creation.
Materials & Finishes
For glass birds we recommend hand washing. If there are stubborn stains on your Toikka Bird, soak the bird in 1dl laundry detergent to one liter of water. Do not scrub, as scouring powder or abrasive scrubbing pads scratch and spoil the surface.
The so-called burning lens phenomenon may damage objects and surfaces in the vicinity of the glass object. To avoid this, do not leave a lens-shaped thick glass object or vase filled with water in direct sunlight.
