I spend as much time as I can in nature. Nature contributes to recovery and balance. Thoughts clear. To walk along a long beach, to smell the sea, of seaweed, to see the drama and strength of the sea during winter. Walking in a deep forest, feeling the soft moss, the smell of pine needles, of resin.
Nature's elements, impressions and colors are transferred to the canvas.

Reijmyre glassworks dates back to 1810, when it was founded in 1810 by Johan Jacob Graver and Baron Mattias Alexander von Ungern-Sternberg. Reijmyre is one of Sweden's oldest still running glassworks. It´s particularly known for genuine craftsmanship and style-conscious design, both in clear and coloured crystal glass. At Reijmyre, everything is made entirely by hand. Reijmyre is perhaps mainly characterized by characteristic glass design, combined with form and function in fantastic colors, especially red, green and blue.

During the evening, a wonderful wine and chocolate tasting was offered. Under the guidance of the cool and knowledgeable wine writer Amanda G Stöckel, selected wines and fantastically tasty pralines from Cecilia Nordström chocolates were paired in a perfect match. The beautiful pralines are like small works of art in themselves. Everything was served in and on beautiful glassware from Reijmyre.
