about

Estrid from the Glasskibe Collection
A Nordic girl’s name stemming from the Viking Era, meaning ‘god and beautiful’. Viking Era names often carried powerful meanings lending skills and protection to the individual.

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.
