(b Breslau [now Wrocław]; fl 1572; d 1603). Silesian stuccoist and architect, active in Sweden. His earliest work in Sweden was probably the stucco decoration (1572) in the King's Apartment at Kalmar Castle. This consists of a hunting frieze running round the walls, executed in a somewhat naive manner, and cartouches, strapwork, garlands and caryatid figures on the ceiling of the window embrasures. The decoration survives, though it was coarsely repainted in the 19th century.
