Among our customers are many talented artists and designers. Because our business is based on You, accomplished designers, we have chosen to let one artist at the time
introduce themselves and their glasswork on our website. We will be adding more artists about four times a year and now it's time for Klart.


Transjö Hytta is a small workshop in the forests of the "Glass Kingdom" of southern Sweden. It was started in 1982 by two Master Glassmakers from the Kosta Boda factory which is famous for its modern designs. At Kosta, also the oldest factory in Sweden (1742), Jan-Erik Ritzman and Sven-Åke Carlsson worked with world renowned designers and collaborated in the invention of what is now called "Mid-Century Modernism".

Eventually Jan-Erik and Sven-Åke decided to strike out on their own and set up a "laboratory" for glass. It would be a place to make their own work, but with room to continue to collaborate with visiting artists, as well as a home for an international apprenticeship program. Their own work combines their extensive technical knowledge with their equally strong connection to the restrained and elegant Scandinavian aesthetic. Jan-Erik and Sven-Åke's work has been exhibited internationally in many museums and galleries.
