Spending a lot of her time in the region of Småland, the heart of production in Sweden, Petra Lilja is interested in the historical as well as current nodes of production. In her explorations of glass, she has worked with the family run glass factory Skruf who are open-minded to her ideas of for example combining glass and wood.
