Nøstetangen glass works - An industrial adventure at Hokksund!

Hear curator Randi Gaustad tell a little about the exhibition, which opened on Saturday 25 May. This takes place in new premises and with new exhibition stands, among other things financed through Sparebanken Øst's gift fund Spire:




Local knowledge with national value

Local historian Bent Ek, together with other local resource persons, has collected knowledge about the Eiker community in the 18th century. Other professional groups on the subject of glass have also collected and written down information about the glassworks, their suppliers and the raw materials used in production.

This extensive work has secured Randi Gaustad's desire to present the exhibition in a cultural-historical perspective. Randi Gaustad is a trained design and art historian, and former conservator at the National Museum. Gaustad was also the curator of the glass exhibition at the Vestfossen art laboratory in 2023. The exhibition is therefore in the very best hands.


The exhibition Praktskår

Bernt-Egil Tafjord is the curator of the exhibition PRAKTSKÅR, which presents excavations at Eiker:

-One aim of the exhibition Praktskår is to convey a selection from the oldest glass history from Eiker, and one of the most special glasses from the Iron Age in Norway: the Solbergvasen.

Here, an attempt is made to show what the vase might have looked like before it ended up in the ground, just a few kilometers from the discovery site of the famous Hoenskatten.

The exhibition is a collaboration between the Nøstetangen Norwegian Glass Museum, Øvre Eiker municipality and Buskerud folk college.
