Dots is the name Cornelius Réer has chosen for his double-walled bowls that can be used either as vessels on a table or arranged as a decorative installation on a wall, both in private homes and public spaces. Another specialty of this Nuremberg-based glass artist is sandblasting the surfaces of his creations, thus giving his vessels a specific structure and redefining them as sculptural objects. Sensitively chosen colors, perfect functionality and purposeful shapes are the hallmarks of Réer’s pieces which, according to this versatile glass artist, should be self-explanatory in every respect. His objects’ appearance might be perfectly clear and distinct, but the process of designing and manufacturing them is often very laborious and time-consuming. Réer’s works have been presented in numerous national and international exhibitions since 1987. In addition, his award-winning creations have been included in the Art Collections of the Coburg Castle, the Zirndorf City Museum, the Museum of Glass Art in Lauscha and the Ewald Okase Museum in Haapsalu, Estonia.
