© Glashütte Comploj
Robert Comploj is a master of glass art. He learned his craft from the world’s greatest: the glass blowers of Murano. Afterwards, he ventured out to spend his learning and wandering years in North America and Denmark. In 2013, he opened Glashütte Comploj in Traun, Upper Austria. It is both an exhibition workshop and a gallery. Upon returning to his native Austria, he revolutionized the local glass blowing scene – making a name for himself on the way by introducing new techniques and colors, experimenting with the form and structure of glass and bringing his punk-style approach to the craft.
