The glass art of Kjell Engman, shown in the rolling-mill at Wij by the county museum under the name of “Magic in the Works”, was a great success. Engman’s colourful creations were contrasting to the dark of the iron-working backdrop. They told a story about the “beautiful people” running the works in central Sweden. We also got to meet the rolling-spirit himself.
The impression was deepened further by the suggestive music actually composed by the glass (or rather multi-) artist himself. As one visitor is reported to have said “This could have been New York, but it is right here in Ockelbo!”
