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)

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 :)
