Jutta Sika (1877–1964) was born Josefa Sika in 1877 in Linz. From 1897 to 1902 she studied painting at the School of Arts and Crafts in Vienna under Rudolf Ribarz (1848–1904) and Koloman Moser (1868–1918), as well as ceramic art under Friedrich Linke (1854–1914). In 1913 she started studying nude painting and costume design at the School of Arts and Crafts under Alfred Roller (1864–1935). She participated in the Paris World Fair in 1900. Together with Therese Trethan (1879–1957), Sika was a founding member in 1901 of the association Wiener Kunst im Hause, which is regarded as a precursor to the Wiener Werkstätte, and existed into the 1930s. The *Glass Vase with Brass Armoring *, created around 1902, is a design by Sika commissioned by the former Imperial Royal purveyors to the court Bakalowits & Söhne and was executed by the glass foundry Wilhelm Kralik Sohn situated in the Bohemian town of Eleonorenhain (present-day Lenora). Sika further designed Christmas tree decorations and boxes of chocolates for the Imperial Royal court confectioner Demel.
