Fritsch was born in 1963 in Sonthofen, Germany. He originally intended to study woodcarving but missed the application deadline, and his mother encouraged him to apply to a jewellery school. Fritsch trained as a goldsmith at the Goldschmiedeschule Pforzheim and worked for a jeweller before attending the Akademie der Bildenden Künste, München between 1987 and 1994, studying under Hermann Junger and Otto Kunzli. In 1994 Fritsch established a jewellery workshop in Munich. In 2006 he received the Françoise van den Bosch Award, given every 2 years to ´an international jewellery and object maker who is recognised for his/ her oeuvre, influence and contribution to the field´. In 2009 Fritsch moved to New Zealand with his partner, New Zealand contemporary jeweller Lisa Walker. Fritsch primarily focuses on making rings, although he occasionally makes other pieces of jewellery and objects. His work is characterised by rough finishes, visible fingerprints, the use of oxidised silver, and mixing high and low materials, such as precious stones, plastic pearls, and glass gemstones.He uses lost wax casting, moulding, and reshaping of found materials to make his jewellery.
