  • I made my own glass

    On Tuesday this week I visited Kosta glass works in Småland, Sweden. We had a chance to make a glass. It was the first time I tried glassblowing, of course with a “little” help from a master glassblower. I’m a little proud that I was able to make it. I was a bit nervous at first, but it was actually really fun and interesting. I saw on their Internet page that you can book a glassblowing weekend. I went back home on the 14, and since it was Valentines day I gave the glass to my wife. At first she didn't believe that I made it, but was very happy about the gift when she got proof that I really made it.

        Thank you very much guys.

        We didn't have any aquavit at home, so we tested it with whisky.

        Regards

          A very good start! I'd be very pleased with that too if I ventured to try it.

                Hi Bo -

                The title certainly got me looking in - a very pleasing result.

                  Lovely; but I think you need to test it again!
