Recent Works: Drinking Horn Nordisk Kult

This medium sized drinking horn is a unique tribute to the immortal old norse customs of celebration.

The self-designed ornamental patterns on this individual item are inspired by different norse styles of art commonly associated with the viking age. For the decoration two different techniques were used: Carving and Pyrography - the deep bas-relief carving and the warm brown tones of the burned parts give an exquisite contrast and depth.
The runic inscriptions dedicate this horn to Odin and vow the drink taken from this ritual vessel.

length: 535 mm / 21,1 inches
