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!

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 of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 1914)

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