Lars Kjellander (1868-1931), renown Kosta Glasbruk (Glassworks) designer and engraver from 1881 to 1925, was the fourth generation of glass workers in his family. During his tenure with Kosta, he worked very closely with such artists as Gunnar Wennerberg and ultimately became Director over the engraving department within Kosta. After his departure from Kosta he continued to work with the company in the creation of Kosta blanks.
