Pukeberg is one of Sweden’s oldest and most well-preserved glassworks. Glass of various types – from everyday glass, lamp glass and petrol pump glass to beautiful art glass – has been made here since 1871. This is a place where you can experience how a glassworks area looked at the beginning of the previous century.
Today the linkage with design is stronger than ever. For example, Linnaeus University’s design programme is located at Pukeberg, and in 2005 the Design Archive moved into newly renovated premises here. In addition, several artists have their studios in the area.
The blowing room at Pukeberg is directly connected to the shop and is open to visitors. Master Gunne Brandstedt produces his own collection and also has exhibitions and leads hands-on activities for groups. Traditional hot-shop herring is served here. Be on the watch for other events in the blowing room!
