Ewald Notter was born in Switzerland and trained at Confiserie Sprüngli in Zurich where he became interested in pulling and blowing sugar. This hobby soon became his passion, and as a result, Notter has become renowned as a master of this craft. Like most fine artists, Notter has an eye for color, an appreciation for textures and a keen sense of detail. In the same way fine artists use acrylics, oils, chalks or clay as their medium, Notter prefers to create his artwork by using a palette of sugar and chocolate. Considered to be a leading expert in modern day confectionery arts he is also well known as a competitor and teacher, he was the first pastry professional inductee into the Pastry Art and Design Hall of Fame by Pastry Art and Design and Chocolatier magazines, and has won numerous other awards.
