HAND CRAFTED AND UNIQUE GLASSWORKING BENCH

World renowned glass artist Jan-Erik Ritzmann began his professional life as one of many glassworkers in Kosta some 60 years ago. Within 7 years he became the youngest ever person in Kosta to reach Master of the Art Glass team, an achievement yet
to be matched. In 1982 along with fellow artisan and Glass Master Sven-Åke Carlsson, Jan-Erik launched the studio,Transjö Hytta in the dark woods of Småland.
     

In a desire to express all his artistic skills, Jan-Erik has now begun to craft benches from the redwood timber surrounding the simple looking red barn where he has his sawmill and workshop deep in the woods. Jan-Erik perfects these benches, from falling the trees himself to sawing, planing and crafting them into a genuinely unique glassworking piece of history.

These lovingly crafted, handmade and signed benches by Jan-Erik Ritzmann are now being made available in a very limited number through Essemce. If you’re interested in owning a real piece of glassblowing history, we suggest you to contact us sooner rather than later, as these exclusive benches have extremely limited availability.
