Skidbladner from the Glasskibe Collection . Skidbladner was a magic ship blessed with constant tailwinds, thus moving fast at sea as well as in the air

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.
