Oiva Toikka was personally opening his exhibition at the prestigious Murray Feldman Gallery at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles in October 1996. At the same time, an exhibition was held at the adjacent Design Finland showroom from October 5 to November 2, 1996. Oiva Toikka signed his glass art for the invited guests. On his trip to California, he heard that he could try pottery with a waxing technique he had never done before. He was excited, as always, since he had a chance to try something new in his work that inspired him. He made a few pottery works at a pottery studio in Los Angeles and this unique work, signed on October 5, 1996, is one of these personal works of art that he wanted to create as a thank you for his visit.
He was a particularly sensitive and humane person. He has said in a interview about his art: “A new product often has a some technical aspect to it that gives it a personal touch. I always start from the technique to get that aspect right. Strict limits are an inspiration, making me try to add something of my own. ”
