'Saga' from the Glasskibe Collection is a unique glass and oak sculpture by the Danish and British artists, Backhaus & Brown and Egeværk.

The title explained by the artists;

“Saga is a goddess mentioned in the ancient sources. She is of the Æsir family (asynje) and her home in Asgård is called Søkkvabek. As Asynje, she belongs to the circle around Odin and is perhaps identical to the goddess Frigg."

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.
