Glass as an inspiration
I began my education 1982 as apprentices at Studio Glashyttan in Åhus. It has been a great inspiration for us to work everyday with our masters to learn the many different techniques, to get passionate for the sparkling crystal and to get touched by the mystery and the feeling for this wonderful material. Glass is an enchanting material with its many faces and a great inspiration worth all the effort it takes to develop. To work together in perfect harmony shaping the glowing mass into new creations and designs with out very own personal style and touch is an inspiring and positive experience.
Hanne Dreutler-Zirnsack 1942-2009: Founder / Artist
Born in 1942 in Freidburg, West-Germany. Hanne was educated in graphic, design and craft and has practiced at Flygsfors, Målerås and Kosta glass factories. Glashyttan works only with crystal of the very best quality. Most of the pieces are made of thick crystal with slender streams or bubbles of coloured glass. The superior quality of the crystal and Studio Glashyttan's own unique designs combine to give the pieces a special lustre in harmony with a fascinating form.
