Deep in the heart of the forest, a glassworks was founded in 1896 – more than 105 years ago. Several generations of skilled glass blowers provide a firm foundation for knowledge and tradition in a company steeped in history.
The Magnor Glassverk is built on tradition, will and ambition. Today, Magnor Glassverk is the biggest tourist attraction in Hedmark, with around 200 000 visitors every year.
The glassworks was founded as early as 1896 in the deep forests near the Swedish border, in the last densely populated area on the Norwegian side, just three kilometres from the border and 120 kilometres from Oslo. The large forests have always been here, supplying fuel for the heat-devouring melting furnaces. The fire has never gone out.
Masters, glass blowers and artists all follow professions which tend to run in families, from father to son, from adult to youth. Magnor Glassverk is no exception - the glass has set its mark on an entire district over the generations. Our history has been shaped by skilled glass workers. Together, they form a firm foundation as the creators and forerunners of our current unique production.
More than a century of tradition in hand-made glass and crystal has given valuable knowledge and experience.
