Emmaboda Kommun


The Glass Factory Hot Shop, located in the museum, is the production site for The Glass Factory's various residency formats to encourage the renewal of glass and show possibilities of finding new ways within the practice of glass, in addition to strengthening the region's internationalization and supporting the development of residency activity in Sweden.

In light of the current situation in The Kingdom of Crystal, and the coordinated effort to develop it, there is need for a sustainable, long-term renewal of a practice and regional development in a region where the glass industry and its role needs re-defining. Within glass and The Kingdom of Crystal, there is knowledge, experience and tradition that includes artistic research as well as design processes based on glass as a material.
