about

Asbroen from the Glasskibe Collection. The title explained by the artists;

"(also known as Bifrost) Asbroen is a mythological rainbow or bridge connecting heaven and earth; Asgård and Midgård. Asbroen is red from naked fire preventing the ‘jætter’ (Norse giants) from going to Heaven. Asbroen is visible to every living creature in the whole wide world".

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.
