Regional handicraft from the glass and ceramic manufactory Hantwerck
We are very pleased to introduce you to a new old workshop store on the western edge of the old town. Until its fifth anniversary in March 2017, it was still known as „Ton Steine Späne.“
is a store for regional handicrafts, glass and ceramic manufactory as well as course room for pottery and glass fusing courses.
It was founded by Alexa Voigtlaender, a journeywoman ceramist, Peter Voigtlaender, a journeyman stonemason, and Ulla Niedermeier, a skilled glass and porcelain painter. Regionality and craftsmanship are so important to them that, without further ado, they actively collaborated in the renovation of the rooms. Peter, for example, laid the floor from local Jura limestone. Alexa and Ulla work directly at [hantwerck].
The trained ceramist turns all vessels made of porcelain and stoneware clay on the potter’s wheel. In the process, timeless, elegant one-of-a-kind pieces as well as colorful favorites are created. Ulla’s pieces are created by fusing different glass plates- granules- threads and powders. In further firings the plates are lowered into suitable forms and gilded. Both partners work independently with their familiar materials, but also design joint multifunctional tableware collections according to the motto „mix & match“.
Flexible courses on creative craftsmanship
The two craftswomen are happy to pass on their knowledge in regular, individual courses. There are neither fixed dates nor contents. They want to be as flexible as possible in their creative work with the participants.
A large part of the work, as well as most of the workshops, takes place at the rustic oak table, from master carpenter Stefan Schedlbauer, in the middle of the store. His solid wood furniture, as well as Peter’s stone objects, expand the store’s assortment. Together, the four form a material collective with many opportunities for collaboration, which is always made of 100% craftsmanship from Regensburg.
Ein ganz aktuelles Beispiel dafür sind ihre „Lumycases“. Dabei handelt es sich um Leuchtobjekte, die aus Edelholzkoffern mit austauschbaren, lichtdurchlässigen Frontplatten aus Glas, Stein und Porzellanton bestehen. Neben der umfangreichen Produktpalette fertigt das [hatwerck]-Team auch gerne spezielle Auftragsarbeiten an.
The #yourlocalgirlboss collective is promoting regional businesses.
And because a lot of fun is part of the hard workday, the girls from [hantwerck] have teamed up with the founders of „HEAVENS TASTE“ and „KEKSZauber“ to form the #yourlocalgirlboss collective. Together, they want to spotlight regional women entrepreneurs and their products at recurring events. The next event is already being planned and we are looking forward to seeing which female founders will be presented to us this time.
