Biography

Ken Schneidereit has excited glass collectors since 1979. His glass journey began at Shorrock Studios where he worked with all aspects of creating 10,000 piece stained glass replicas of famous paintings. He then worked as a glass artist at Black and Paterno, and added lampworking and cold working to his repertoire. In the 1980's, he started his own studio and began creating one-of-a-kind custom pieces for Chalfonte St. Giles, the premier custom design gallery in San Francisco.

Figurative sculpture became a focus for Ken, and commissions from professional sports teams and other unique projects landed Ken's glass art in the National Baseball Hall of Fame, a presidential library, and the collection of many celebrities, politicians, and corporate dignitaries. He is also known for his murrini work, and in 2010, his Calico and German Shepherd murrini were added to the Salem Community College Murrini collection. Ken's murrini, as well as his lampworking, are featured in marbles, sculpture, and jewelry. As a member of the Glass Art Society, Ken promises many new concepts as he explores the interaction between sculpture and fluid glass.
