Passion for blown glass and for each other

  • • Christina and Leif have mastered the hand-blown techniques
  • • They strive for a symphony of shapes and colours
  • • Their work merges every aspect of the Scandinavian spirit

Both Christina Hellevik and Leif Møller Nielsen are newcomers to Ebeltoft. Originally from Norway, Christina got her artistic education in Denmark, while Leif came to Ebeltoft from Copenhagen. Both of them trained as glassblowers in the famous Swedish Kosta. Their glass workshop Pust (which translates as "Blow") is today situated in the old merchant´s house in the centre of picturesque Ebeltoft – once a fishing town surrounded by magnificent nature. The place is a combination of the hot shop and a sales gallery filled with unique hand blown utility and decorative glass items. Exquisite shapes – either plain or decorated – are in perfect balance with the delicate shades of colours.
