With 20-plus years of experience in glassmaking, in his current phase Patrick Roth is focused on the sculptural casting technique. But he also frequently draws on his classical education in glass-cutting and engraving which he developed to a high standard as a workshop manager at Lobmeyr in Vienna and teaching at the Glass School in Rheinbach (Germany).
To be able bring your personal inner vision to an aesthetic and powerful creation in glass, it is indispensable to have the skills and knowledge to see how the material fits in. Roth uses strong combinations of shape, haptics and title to uncover the concealed message behind.
