Swedish modern handblown art glass bowl, executed by Jan Erik Ritzman and Sven-A°ke Carlsson at their renowned workshop Transjo¨ Hytta. The piece is in an excellent condition and signed on the bottom: “Transjo¨ W.R.C.” circa 1980s. Measures: 6.5″ tall x 9.5″ in diameter approximately.
This piece came from a movie producer’s high-end estate, that included Paul Evans, Milo Baughman, Picasso, and other world re-known designers, as well as the best literature one could imagine.
Transjo¨ 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 famous Kosta Boda factory, the oldest factory in Sweden (1742).
Jan-Erik and Sven-A°ke 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-A°ke’s work has been exhibited internationally in many museums and galleries.
