Steningeslott - Lars Festerik ?
« on: March 15, 2009, 09:40:08 PM »
I recently stumbled upon a piece signed - as far as I could deduct - "Lars Festerik Steningeslott".

I could trace the "Steningeslott" as the workshop where it was made but could not find any reference to the artist or glassblower. Does this name ring a bell with anybody ?

Greetings from the Land of the Midnight Sun.

Steningeslott was a small glass works created at a beautiful castle in Sweden near Arlanda, the Swedish airport of Stockholm by the owner of DUCA, a Norwegian retailer and the owner of Hadeland Glassworks.

In addition, they also purchased Lindshammer Glassworks in Sweden where Edvin Öhrström had the famous obelisk in Stockholm created with over 88,000 pieces of cast crystal.

The designers from Hadeland and Lindshammar had work produced at Steningeslott.

Both Steningeslott and Lindshammar Glasbruk are now closed from production. I think one or two glass blowers still
work at Steningeslott for the tourist visitors.
