Glassmedjen is owned by glass artists Nanna Backhaus Brown and Andrew Jason Brown.
We handcraft and hand blow glass art in a unique and modern Scandinavian design, created with traditional glass forming techniques and with a special love for the classical Italian design techniques Pasterelli and Battuto. The glass art is simple, elegant and beautiful to look at as well as being functional. It is created to be used and enjoyed every day.
Vi create unique glass art, simple and elegant glass series, glass lighting, larger productions of handmade glass lamps, as well as sculptural glass art and glass decorations for private persons, companies and institutions. We would be delighted to create your own custom-made and unique piece of glass art from your own personal design and we would also be happy to craft a beautiful gift for your employees or handcraft a special, unique and exclusive gift for the one you hold dear.
We both began our careers as glass blowers 25 years ago. Nanna served her apprenticeship at Arresø Glashytte and Andrew blew his first bubbles in Stourbridge School of Glass in England. We met in Brittany in France, where we both worked at l’Atelier de Verre in St. Meloir. At this time we had both studied as glass blowers for about 4 years. After our stay in France we moved to Denmark and began our life together as professional glass artists - partners in life and art. In 1993 we opened our first glass blowing studio and shop in Kregme in Frederiksværk and after 14 successful years we made our dream come true - a dream of opening a studio by the sea. In 2008 we opened the doors to Glassmedjen - our glass blowing studio, gallery and shop at 540m² in total, situated beautifully in the heart of Hundested Harbour.
During the past 25 years we have sold our art to private persons, companies, private and public collectors and galleries around the world and we have displayed our art at exhibitions in Denmark and internationally in Japan, UK, France, Germany, Belgium, Holland and Scandinavia.
In Glassmedjen you can experience the art of glass blowing at first hand in our studio, you can find a special and unique gift and you are more than welcome to enjoy our gallery. We often celebrate various happenings and we offer glass blowing events to private persons, art societies and companies. You are also welcome to rent our conference room, ”Udsigten”, for meetings and parties. It is situated above Glassmedjen in a very beautiful setting with a marvellous panoramic view of Hundested Harbour and the sea.
We bid you a warm welcome to our little artistic corner of the world.
