Name: Jantje Fleischhut
Jantje Fleischhut is trained as classical jeweller in Germany, accomplished her technical back round later with conceptual and creative thinking at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in the jewellery department (BA) and the Sandberg Institute (MA) in Amsterdam.
Since her graduation in 2002 she runs her own studio in Amsterdam. Here Fleischhut
creates unique pieces and jewellery in small edition, both are equally important to her — one inspires the other. Her fascinations are plastic material, the universe and space travelling.
Since 2000 her work is presented by Dutch and international Galleries, as well at Museums and international art and design fairs. Gallery Rob Koudijs and Gallery Ornamentum are the main representatives of Fleischhut’s work.
Next to her studio work Fleischhut teaches at the Post Industrial Design Course at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague and the jewellery department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam before she becomes Professor at the University of applied art in Düsseldorf, Germany in 2016.
Since 2001 she is invited for various workshops, lectures or seminars; Oslo, Tokyo, Copenhagen, Maastricht, Arnhem and Idar-Oberstein.
She is member of the Francoise van den Bosch foundation since 2012 and won the Herbert Hoffmann Prize in Munich in 2008.
