Despite his English-sounding name, Christian Edwards is born and raised in Copenhagen. A hint of artistic talent has always existed in the family, but Christian did not begin to pursue his interest until the mid 90s. What first started out as a retail shop for various crafts in 1995 soon turned into a strictly glass business in 1999 and by 2004 his own studio. Working with and observing a master within glassblowing, Christian picked up the skill in less than 3 years and has been developing his own unique technique ever since. It is both a job and a hobby which he enjoys.

The glass is both designed and hand blown by Christian. His work is characterized by soft and gentle forms, muted and subtle colors, and flowing shapes. Given the long Danish maritime tradition and the shop’s waterfront location by Nyhavn, one can also discern sea motifs, waves and movement in each piece. When you see the glass, you want to run your fingers along its smooth edges and follow its curves. More than simply arousing the visual sensation, it above all heightens the sense of touch. Neither provocative nor sensational, the pieces are meant to reflect simplicity through their classic and timeless designs, while being modern and functional at the same time. Pieces include drinking glasses, champagne flutes,bowls and plates, milk and sugar sets.
