Our artists’ lives
On a normal day, many GLASSKIBE-related activities take place simultaneously in our workshops. Some require creative immersion while others require joint decisions.

In the glass studio, the ship hulls are created in the hot and the cold workshop. In the hot workshop, several glass blowers collaborate on creating large, oblong bubbles that will eventually become the sophisticated hulls of the Viking ships. In
the cold workshop, the bubbles are cut, ground and sandblasted into perfection.

At Egeværk, every fiber of the wood is carefully considered before the construction of the keel and stern is carried out. Pieces of natural and fumed oak are joined and cut to suit the rough first sketches of the individual pieces. The keels and sterns are subsequently hand shaped and sanded to perfection while runes and other Viking symbols are carefully carved into the wood.

Gluing is done in one workshop while the polishing takes place in the other. The ships are passed back and forth. Colours, shapes, expressions, runes and Norse symbolism have become the main subjects of an ongoing dialogue between our two workshops. A dialogue that keeps developing in our intersection of magical proportions.
