"From medicine bottles to art glass"
The first glassworks in Målerås was founded in 1890. There was a great demand for mouth blown window glass and medicine bottles in the early Målerås era.
During the 1940-50’s Målerås Glassworks was known for making high end crystal stemware.
In 1981 designer Mats Jonasson and local investors acquired Målerås Glassworks and since 1987 the Mats Jonasson family is the majority owner of the company.
For many years, Mats Jonasson was the only designer at Målerås Glassworks. In the beginning his unique skills in engraving together with his love and interest in nature resulted in the world famous Wildlife series. It has become a Målerås classic and is still very popular. In 2000 Mats Jonasson entered his more colourful period where the inspiration often came from ancient stories and myths.
In recent years Målerås Glassworks has extended the number of artists and today Ludvig Löfgren, Lina Lundberg, Morgan Persson and Robert Ljubez work at the company.
Today Målerås Glassworks is considered one of the most exciting art glassworks. The company is represented all over the world with an export rate of about 40%.
