About GERNER JAHNCKE

 

We are Rick Gerner (NL) and Johanne Jahncke (DK) and together we form Gerner Jahncke.

 

Our work is about glass and its production – the fascination of a transparent and liquid material, formed by hand and tool – a craft carried by legacy and traditions – a physical approach narrating the relation between maker and material.

 

We use what lies beneath our feet – research what material itself implies and transform earthly materials into products of everyday life. Our design comes from a tradition rooted in functionalism and is combined with the characteristics of specific materials, glass for instance; the outcome unfolds the richness of our cultural heritage.
