But it was not until Hansi was 14, he began to learn glass blowing mixture arts for real. 1985 he joined Orrefors glass school in unchecked studied for 2 years. During his school years he participated in his first group exhibition, held in Gothenburg 1986th After school in Orrefors, he began working on various glassworks and studios to work up their skills. Gradually, there have been new techniques that he is uniquely able to combine and thus come up with his own personal style.
