Glass studio Erikshyttan

Erikshyttan in Eriksmåla is a favorite place to visit in Småland. We passed the shop several times. It was never open,
but we could see lovely pieces on the shelves. Later we learned that Lars Sö(rensen) blows glass in the barn behind
the shop. We now carry coffee and sandwiches, sneak into the barn if it is open, and eat breakfast until he looks up
and sees us and takes a break. The barn is full of treasures including iron stoves that Lars restores. Photo from 2007.

a corner of the shop and covered in construction dust. See the wood-burning iron stoves in the background.
