Sculpturally dramatic by nature, the penguin lends itself perfectly to a Toikka glass creation. Toikka’s rendition of the penguin is perhaps more minimalistic than some of his other birds, but that is only because the penguin does not need any extra flourishes. As Toikka says, "Penguins are suchsculptural birds in their own right that one doesn’t need to add anything." His clarity of vision is evident in Ping, which is made of opaque black and white glass and then polished to a lovely glisten. Toikka has made two penguins: Pang and Ping, which function either as individual pieces or as a set. Pang is slightly smaller than his brother, Ping.

Oiva Toikka's imagination and iittala's skilled Finnish glassblowers have created magical glass birds for over 30 years. Oiva is inspired by birds found all over the globe, but he makes each creation his own.

Wrapping is very good. In additon, the penguin was delivered much more speedy than I had expected.
