Meet the Maker: Robert Schwartz is an American Glass Artist, who graduated from the Australian National University School of Art in Design with a Master of Visual Arts (Advanced) in 2017.
His art work explores how the materiality of glass can be used to provoke wonderment in the complexity and ingenuity of the amalgamation of elements in even the simplest of forms. His work identifies and draws comparisons between various elements of nature, design and process to influence and guide his making and aesthetic decisions - man-made and natural phenomenon, glass blowing and glass casting, multiple components and interconnections.
