Artist Reinhard Herzog began his fascination with glass in 1963 at the age of 14 and graduated from the Wertheim Academy of Glass as a technical engineer nine years later. Changeable, contradictory and sometimes volatile, glass became a passion for Reinhard. Using the few fleeting moments, when glass is heated to its fluid state he twists, blows, bends and spins a form before it hardens back to its natural state. He calls glass “a child of light” and seeks ways to capture its beauty in all his designs. All pieces are crafted in Germany
