Professor Oiva Toikka created each glass bird in close cooperation with glassblowers, first at the Nuutajärvi glass factory and later at the Iittala glass factory.

The bird of the year 2024, Alder Trush, has a classic bird shape with attractive brown, blue and green feather decorations. The Bird of the Year is the perfect gift to commemorate the most important moments of the year or a unique addition to any collector's collection. Each bird is engraved with the year's mark.
