Nattesværdet from the Glasskibe Collection
(The Night Sword) - Nattesværdet is a weapon protecting the giant Gymer's farm.

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.

We are delighted to be showing Glasskibe in collab We are delighted to be showing Glasskibe in collaboration with Egeværk at Vessel Gallery vessellondon at the londonartfair in the curated section Platform by candida_stevens. Platform presents Folk Art, a view to our cultural heritage, our communities and our identity and how artists who are working in the Folk tradition have chosen to pass on this cultural heritage of knowledge and inspiration.
 
Cultural heritage is unique and irreplaceable, it is an expression of the ways of living, developed over time by a community and passed on from generation to generation. It can include customs, practices, places, objects, artistic expressions and values. The cultural heritage of a community reflects and shapes values, beliefs, and aspirations helping to define people’s national identity.

With global industrialisation, machines replacing the handmade, cultures all over the world are at risk of losing knowledge, skills and cultural heritage. Artists now working in the folk tradition are expressing the importance of their heritage. Platform explores artists who have revived lost knowledge, developed inherited skills, and sharing inherited legacies. Whilst todays artworks may be decorative, once they would have been utilitarian, but the passing on of knowledge remains the same.

This ship has set sail for new shores. Congratulations to the new owner!
