Glasriket / Målerås / Småland / Mats Jonasson - Person Non Grata

Every time we are driving through the south of Sweden - (and we did that in 1999, ‘02, ‘04, ‘06 and last time was in 2017) - we plan a visit to a special area in south-east of Sweden, in province of Småland, where we can enjoy “The Kingdom of Crystal” (Glasriket).

One of these glasswork factories is in Målerås:

Today it is mainly art and decorative glassware that is ground, painted and engraved. The animal reliefs in crystal by head designer Mats Jonasson are well-known all over the world.
Mats Jonasson Målerås is the largest privately-owned glassworks in Sweden. The head designer at the glassworks, Mats Jonasson, was born and grew up in the district and he is also the major owner. In the exhibition hall you can see both old engraved masterpieces and the very latest creations (*).
There is also a shop at the glassworks selling glass at factory prices.


* You can see the shop and some other from of his creations in the Workshops
