ROBERT LEE FRITZ has worked with glass since 1971. When he established his studio in Lombard, he was the first Chicagoland independent hot glass artist. He specializes in creating hand-blown crystal paperweights, vases, and sculptures on which he carves silhouettes of cranes (the symbol of long life and good fortune), herons, and other Midwestern birds.
“Each piece that I create is a story that I’m telling: stories of family, stories of journeys, stories of relationships.” Fritz says.
