Photographer's Note

The Swedish Glass Museum (ocated in the centre of Växjö in Smĺland) has been collecting glass and archival documents from Swedish glassworks for over 80 years, generating one of the largest and most extensive collections in Europe. Today, the collection includes around 40,000 items of glassware, from 105 Swedish glassworks, dating from the 1580s up to the present day. The Swedish Glass Museum also runs research and documentation programs concerning glass and glass handling.

Glass in the middle belonged to Carl von Linné, who was born in this city. Carl was a Swedish botanist, physician, and zoologist, who formalised the modern system of naming organisms called binomial nomenclature. He is known by the epithet "father of modern taxonomy".
