SCHOTT Collection of unique and amazing glass sculptures by Christopher Ries
SCHOTT, an innovator in optical materials since its founding in 1884, has been at the forefront of the Contemporary Glass Movement that began in the United States in the 1960’s. Able to manufacture glasses of extreme purity and transparency and in large sizes, SCHOTT is recognized as a source for this unique, beautiful artistic medium.

In 1979, Christopher Ries, then a glassblower, began a search for a supplier of large, clear pieces of glass that he could use to create works employing cold working techniques. He found the ultimate glass sculpting material at the SCHOTT factory in Duryea, Pennsylvania. After several years of experimentation in his Columbus, Ohio studio, the company’s management asked him to become artist-in-residence.

This relationship had a duration of thirty plus years and resulted in the creation of some of the largest monolithic glass sculptures ever produced.

SCHOTT is the owner of a significant number of fine Ries sculptures that were created during that period. We are offering the SCHOTT Collection of crystal sculpture to the public and invite you to look at the available pieces in the following pages. We hope you might find the perfect piece for your lobby or living room.
