Oh no, this is terrible
Yet another in a long line of closures.
OH and I have, for 20 years, driven over to Småland to visit all the glass studios; not necessarily to buy anything, more to see what was on the pipe. When we first started, our trips were meticulously planned in order to pack in as many studios as possible. It used to take us 3 glorious, inspiring days. Sometimes we went twice a year.
Now we can do the trip in one day and it is heartbreaking to drive through the villages and see old, familiar workshops closed and lifeless. It's so sad.
