I just thought to pass along a little information about Erik HÃ¶glund, one of the most interesting individuals I have had the pleasure of meeting on
Eric was diabetic, having lost a leg and kidney to surgery and suffered a great deal from this illness.
His glass in the 1980's and 1990's created with the masters at the Studio at Stromberghyttan incorporated bright exciting colors and represented his attitude about life. His paintings during this period featured opague strong colors celebrating life.
While in his presence, he never complained and always seemed to be aware of his existence. Whenever I become a bit somber, I think about this wonderful man who enjoyed life.
His funeral was a celebration of life with a jazz band playing upscale exciting music, a real tribute to his memory.
