The title explained by the artists;
"Jotunheim is the home of the ’Jætter’ to the north. The ’Jætter’ were supernatural beings of giant size. This Glasskibe is our second interpretation of Jotunheim."
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 handblown glass and carved oak.
The artists can also create pieces to commission, please contact the gallery for further information.
