Born 1960 in Glarus, Switzerland, Moritz began an apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker in 1984. In addition to arts and crafts, he works full-time in the machine industry in a management position.
For over 35 years he has been making jewelry almost exclusively in the Ashanti casting technique. Inspired by nature, he seeks simple powerful forms. All his works are unique and are made in the lost wax casting process in the old artisan tradition with the help of fireproof clay, horse manure and charcoal.
