Whilst hunting for Hovmantorp (the glassworks) in another thread I happened across a site of a mold maker who works in Hovmantorp (the place) which is interesting... he mentions the different materials molds can be made from.

It's a site looking at glass from another perspective (as Glen often says, these are the unsung heroes of glassmaking).  (site is in English and Swedish)

Thank you Anne, a great find!
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Very interesting to see the effect various mould materials have, and why they're used. Thanks :)
