about

Ran from the Glasskibe Collection
Is the goddess of the bottom of the sea. She captures drowned sailors in her fishing nets and takes them to her seabed kingdom.
The Danish town of Hundested is steeped in maritime history and richly from the Viking Age. It is the majestic imagery of the Viking ships passing that has inspired two of the harbour’s contemporary craft companies; cabinetmakers Egeværk and glass artists Backhaus & Brown. These two award-winning workshops have combined their masterful crafts in an innovative collaboration; namely a series of sculptures named "Glasskibe" – Viking ships in hand blown glass and carved oak.
