Jess Chonowitsch

Jess Chonowitsch (*1947) grew up with a lot of pets around, so to study to become a veterinarian was a natural choice. But during a vacation from school he got a job in Poul Rasmussen’s workshop and was captured by the beauty of briar. After the death of Poul Rasmussen, Jess was working for W. Ø. Larsen’s, but he also spent a lot of time in Sixten Ivarsson’s workshop. He has been on his own since the early 70s and is living in a small village in the southern part of Zealand.
