ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Robert Held uses techniques that date back as long ago as 2000 B.C.; however, his collections range from classic to contemporary. Some works are inspired by the paintings of famous artists such as Monet and Klimt, while others take inspiration from photographers and even interior designers. Now, after over 50 years of blowing glass, Robert still loves the act of creating art from this molten mass of sand with his own breath. Hopefully, breathing life and beauty into each piece for all to enjoy.
