In 2020, a glass gallery was closed on Dominikonų Street, and in 2022, a stained glass manufacture was closed on Stiklių Street. Gradually disappearing are the monumental, impressively sized, and highly artistic value interior and window stained glass pieces. The last glassblowing furnaces in Lithuania went out in 2022. Glass artists are forced to travel to the Czech Republic, Finland, and Sweden to blow glass. These phenomena raise concern and the question - will glass art, glass culture survive in our country?"

This exhibition stand showcases the path of producing glassblowed products. The aim of this stand is to remind that glass blowing has not only functional purpose but also it can be the impressive art pieces.

In conclusion, the decline of glass blowing and stained glass craftsmanship in Lithuania poses a significant threat to the preservation of our glass art and culture. The closure of galleries and workshops, along with the extinguishing of glassblowing furnaces, highlights the urgent need for revitalization efforts within the industry. However, by acknowledging these challenges and exploring opportunities for collaboration with international partners, we can work towards ensuring the continued existence and flourishing of glass art and culture in our country. It is imperative that we invest in education, support local artisans, and foster a renewed appreciation for the beauty and significance of glass as an artistic medium. Only through collective action and dedication can we safeguard the legacy of glass blowing for future generations to cherish and enjoy.
