Bob Kliss and Laurie Kliss

"We consider ourselves colorists first and foremost, and are endlessly intrigued by the ability of glass to convey pure colors."

Bob and Laurie Kliss create sculptural glass objects with a playful use of color, form, texture and shape. 

Bob assembles the colors and shapes for the base of each drawing and fuses the base with secondary color elements. He then blows the vessel, continually heating and re-heating the piece up to temperatures of 1000 degrees. He melts and fuses the glass, working with it until it reaches its final desired shape. He then applies brightly colored lip wrap to the vessel?s rim, which completes the piece. After cooling, he signs and dates each piece.
