The Glass Art Society NRW e.V. presents contemporary glass. It is our intention to create the basis on which intensive exchanges take place amongst ourselves and to enter into dialogue with interested parties. Glass should, as a means of expression in art, with all its manifestations and as an instrument in the work, be made a public focal point.
The glass objects created by the sculptor Korbinian Stöckle are made using both hot and cold techniques, spontaneously formed at the kiln and mostly with sand blasting techniques or engraving. The particular technique is not so much dependent on aesthetic considerations but more on the expressive qualities inherent in the glass and the specific process involved. Stöckles objects can be categorised into three groups: vase-like vessels, autonomous sculptures and large room-filling installations.
