Professor Oiva Toikka is one of the greatest names in Finnish glass. His imaginative, rich and bold glass art deviates from the streamlined aesthetic of Nordic design. He has worked in the performing arts for as long as he has in glass. The Birds collection is Toikka's best-known work. He has enjoyed an international career and received numerous awards, among them Lunning Prize, Pro Finlandia Medal, World Glass Now 85 Award, Kaj Franck Design Prize and the Prince Eugen Medal. The Kastehelmi range of glassware that Toikka originally designed in 1964 was also the outcome of a technical challenge. To celebrate Toikka's 50th, Iittala reintroduced a selection of the most popular pieces in the range in year 2010. The idea of using droplets of glass as decoration came to Toikka when he was thinking of ways of covering the joint marks left on the surface of pressed glass pieces by the production process.Professor Oiva Toikka, who designed his much-loved Kastehelmi collection in 1964, has designed a new pedestal serving bowl for the range, which works perfectly as a dessert or ice cream bowl, or as a serving dish. The bowl is also an excellent gift item. Mix and match colors from the rest of the Kastehelmi collection to create the perfect table setting for holidays, special occasions, and everyday gatherings.
