Hartmut Ringel was born in West Germany. As a young artist, he took an apprenticeship in a joiner’s workshop where he learned the fine handling of wood and to build individual pieces of furniture. With a degree in fine cabinet making, he traveled as a journeyman and worked in many shops all over Europe. From 1998 to 2002 he studied art and design before coming to Wisconsin in 2004 with his wife and son, the family liked it here and stayed. Hartmut is represented by Wantoot Gallery in Mineral Point, the Cornerstone Gallery in Baraboo, Teak & Soxy in Princeton, and the shop of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art.
