    Steven Heinemann

    Director Glass Production & Technology

    At the beginning of my career; I trained as a glassmaker, a really traditional craft. You learn how to create and design a glass object from a liquid mass - including drinking glasses, of course, like the ones we make by machine here at Ritzenhoff.
