Ritalahti has worked with glass since 1980. She had her shop and studio in Tampere, Finland until 2014.

Ritalahti has lived in North Granby since 2015 and is an active member and vice president of Granby Artists Association. She is also a member of the board at ISGB (International Society of Glass Bead-makers) New England Chapter. She teaches and creates new glass art together with her husband Mark Gottlieb at Silver Street Glass, LLC.

Ritalahti’s main public works are in Finland, but her art has found its way to private residences around the world. She has had several private art exhibitions in galleries in Europe and her art has been accepted to several juried art shows, having been displayed as invited artist on many occasions.

Lost Acres Vineyard is open Fridays and Saturdays, 12–6 p.m., and Sundays 12–5 p.m., at 80 Lost Acres Road, North Granby.
