Hand Blown at the Museum of Glass during the 2017 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 2017 the team created 100 birds in a variety of styles to commemorate Finland’s 100 years of independence.
Each bird is hand etched with “MOG IITTALA 2017” to commemorate the residency and ensure authenticity. These birds do not come with an Iittala box.
The Kihu Labbe has a metallic beak with a yellow and transparent feathered body.
