Peter Brandes is a painter, sculptor, ceramic artist and photographer. He holds the record for having creating (11 times) the largest ceramic vessels in the history of the world. Both Brandes, and his wife Maja Lisa Engelhardt, are involved in liturgical design. During the past twenty-five years they have been in large part responsible for a “renaissance in Danish church interiors.” They have made work for over 20 churches with stained glass, painted altarpieces, floor coverings, mosaics, vestments and metal work, all essential components of their extensive ecclesiastical projects. Brandes has recently completed a new commission, The Church of the Northern Lights at the tip of Norway.
