Hand Blown at the Museum of Glass during the 2018 residency of Finnish Glassblowers Helena Welling and Juha Saarikko, the birds made in our Hot Shop are an opportunity for the team to experiment with color palettes. Collectors can find traditional Iittala designs created with a one-of-a-kind twist.
Treasured by collectors the world over, these MOG creations are a rare collectable and have a limited availability. In 2018 the theme was US State birds, many of which are historically made by Iittala
Each bird is hand etched with “MOG IITTALA 2018” to commemorate the residency and ensure authenticity. These birds do not come with an Iittala box.
The Blue Hen is the state bird of Delaware, and the Rhode Island Red is the state bird for Rhode Island.
