Hi:

First, Sea Glass Works has been owned by Kosta Boda for a number of years and the work produced by this
company, in one man's opinion, mine, cannot hold a candle to the work of the other glass houses, historic and contemporary operating in Sweden.

Their work since I started coming to and living in Sweden is second class in form, shape and color and is the worst of the worst produced in this country. The one form with Swedish colored ribbon might be the saving grace which seems to be loved by the Swedish population.

This piece is too sophisticated for the Sea Glassworks and I might end up eating these words but I would go for
a Finnish company.

Best
Bill Geary

Dear Bill Geary.

Please do forgive me for saying this:

It hurts me reading Your writing about the Sea glasscompany.
Even if, in Your opinion, this isn't the most astonishing work of glass it will certainly due in many homes.
Best regards from a Swedish lady with som Rocket in her position
