WELCOME TO BALTIC SEA GLASS
FERVENTLY PASSIONATE ABOUT GLASS
Welcome to the fascinating world of Baltic Sea Glass, characterized by the hallmarks
– craft art – reflection – history –
created by the glowing passion for glass of Maibritt Jönsson and Pete Hunner.
Glass artists Maibritt Jönsson and Pete Hunner have been driven by their passion for glass for more than 35 years now. They have managed to infuse their collaboration and artistic fellowship with new dimensions to create some of the most outstanding glass art in the world today.
Over the years, their unique cooperation and passion for the immense technical and aesthetic potential of glass has produced unique, highly acclaimed works of art that have resonated all over the world. Jönsson & Hunner are represented in museums and collections world-wide.
Our vision here at Baltic Sea Glass is to share this passion for beautiful glass with our visitors. We simply love glass! We give you an opportunity to get close to the glassblowing workshop to experience the magic of how we craft the glowing glass. Glass has its own soul. Glass is essentially both hard and soft, and fascinating to develop.
Our involvement with glass is guided by our philosophy to capture movement, a sense of the viscosity, and pursue this transformation as we follow the glass from a molten to a solid state. A crucial and enduring aspect of our design is to retain a perception of the glass as once having been as fluid as fresh honey.
Let your curiosity guide you through the gallery and be enchanted by the exquisite glass crafted in this spirit, inspired by the magnificent natural qualities of Bornholm over its changing seasons. This is seen in the inspiring Unika works—with themes such as Corn, Defoliation, The Ocean, Feather, Horsetails, Snowflake and much more—that are also found in the Gallery.
