tina ratzer has graduated in textile design and weaving from the design school kolding, denmark. in 1999 she founded her own studio ratzer.

ratzer works very tactile and sensuously, often with a geometric expression and a balanced colour scheme in her product design, which merges into more complex compositions in her unique artworks and public commissions. always with a twist or a surprising detail that lets the techniques of the craftsmanship step forward and become an important part of the work.

when taking a kaleidoscopic look at tina ratzer’s objects, it is characteristic how the categories of applied art, design and contemporary art interweave with each other.
