  • Since 1968, the Frbel Studio has created some of the worlds most stunning works of art in crystal and color glass, which have enhanced the interi-ors of many homes, estates and office buildings. Companies and individuals choose Frbels as sym-bols of exceptional achievement and as gifts to worthy employees, business partners, close friends and beloved family members on special occasions. A Frbel expresses excellence through excellence, i.e. a hand created, unique work of glass art for an exceptional individual. Frbels are so remarkable that they are frequently acquired as distinctive gifts for the rich and famous.

  • The Frbel Studio was founded in 1968 by Hans Godo Frbel, one of the very first flamework glass artists in the world, to give expression to his novel concept of flamework glass art. Tra-ditional glass art, called furnace glass, is made by taking a small piece of molten glass out of a furnace with a metal blowpipe and working it into shape. Furnace glass allows for large pieces to be created, but does not offer the level of detail Frbel was looking for. Frbel wanted to utilize the detail capabilities of flamework to add a new and more exquisite dimension to the world of glass art. Presently eight glass artists are working at the Frbel Studio creating magnificent works of art, which are on display in museums around the world such as the Smithsonian Institution, the Corning Museum of Glass and the National Builders Museum. Frbel sculptures are in the hands of some of the most famous and powerful people in the world, such as Presidents Jimmy Carter, George Bush and Bill Clinton, Queen Elizabeth II, Emperor Akihito of Japan, Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev, Oprah Winfrey, Elton John, Larry King, Wayne Newton, Stevie Wonder, Sting and Jane Fonda.

    Each studio sculpture receives the famous FS mark of the studio and the signature of the Fr-bel artist who created the sculpture. Each one-of-a-kind or limited edition sculpture receives the GF mark, which stands for the name of the principal artist, Hans Godo Frbel. The Frbel Studio is open weekdays for visitors and tours.

  • AboveThis sculpture entitled Cavort-ing Clowns was created by Hans Godo Frbel in 1987. It was utilized by Absolut Vodka in their advertising outings during the late 1980s until the early 1990s. Hans Godo Frbel joined the ranks of famous artists honored with the title of Absolut Vodka Art-ist such as Andy Warhol and Keith Haring.

  • The Frbel Studio has created a great number of glass sculptures that revolutionized the world of glass art. One of the most famous Frbel sculp-tures is the Hammer and Nails, created by Hans Godo Frbel in 1977, which has been touring art museums around the world ever since.

    In the collection of the Smithsonian Institution is the dripping faucet created in glass, entitled In the Middle of the Night. With this sculpture, Hans Godo Frbel freezes a dripping faucet in time, right at the moment when an exaggerated water drop is about to fall from the faucet. Frbel playfully exaggerated the water drop on the faucet to symbolize the loud sound of any drop of wa-ter heard when one is in bed, trying to fall asleep. Another famous Frbel sculpture is the Cavort-ing Clowns he created for Absolut Vodka when he was selected as Absolut Vodka artist in 1987. Frbel was the first glass artist receiving this hon-or, joining other artists such as Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. His Cavorting Clowns sculpture was used in Absolut ads from 1987 until 1993 under the title Absolut Frbel.

    The Frbel Studio is also well known for its beautiful glass renderings of flowers, such as Orchids, Dogwoods and Magnolias. Examples of some of the Orchids the Frbel Studio has created can be found on these pages.
