Description Fine cabinet making crafted oak with handblown & cut glass combine to create this unique sculpture "Asbroen" from the Glasskibe Collection (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 from Norse mythology)

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.

Artworks from this collection have been sold to many private collectors but have also been purchased for the Vikingskipshuset, the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo and more recently, shown at the Danish Pavilion during the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

A unique collaboration in the truest sense, drawing on the skills of two crafts, based in two workshops and from two Nationalities, British and Danish.
