At some of Bornholm’s glass blowers, you can discover beautiful and functional glass, bowls and dishes in simple shapes and bright colours, as well as many exciting one-of-a-kind objects. Other glass blowers play with the light, the yarn of the fishermen, the farmer’s ear of corn, jet streams from the planes or simply a forgotten piece of rope.
