Join Karen Hurley Kuchar for the next episode of Creating Space which will feature an interview with glass artist, Robert Lee Fritz.
Each piece that I create is a story that I’m telling: stories of family, stories of journeys, stories of relationships.
Robert Lee Fritz has worked with glass since 1971. When he established his studio in Lombard, he was the first Chicagoland independent hot glass artist. He specializes in creating hand-blown crystal paperweights, vases, and sculptures on which he carves silhouettes of cranes (the symbol of long life and good fortune), herons, and other Midwestern birds.
Quote, images and bio from Fritz’s website, freeblownglass.com. See samples of his work on the site.
