He was a well known silversmith.

In 1747 he started a six-year apprenticeship to Olof Fernlöf, one of the best silversmiths in Gothenburg.

In 1753 he passed his journeyman exams. Nothing is known about the next nine years; probably he travelled around until ending up in Amsterdam in 1762.

Schiotling registered as a master with the Amsterdam silversmiths guild and married. In Amsterdam a group of silversmiths gravitated around him. His firm's produced numerous pieces and Schiotling focused increasingly on retailing rather than making silver objects.
Although his workshop produced many candelabras, he sold many different objects.

Johannes Schiotling died in 1799.
