These colorful, sweet and playful mouth-blown glass birds are created by young Finnish designer Anu Penttinen for Iittala.

The collection of six birds is called ‘Cartoon Chicks’. They are all based on tropical birds, but with a ‘cartoon’ look.

With names like Cool Joe, I’m All Bananas, Ippy the Hippie, Snowball, Apple pie and/or Funky Violet, the birds are definitely filled with personality and charm.

Anu is also the one who designed Iittala’s Vitriini boxes.
