The work of sculptor Christopher Solbert has been shown at exhibitions and galleries throughout the Northeast. He is included in the private collections of the National Academy of Science in Washington, D.C., the offices of Credit Suisse First Boston and Davis Polk & Wardwell in Tokyo, Japan, and at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in Cold Spring Harbor, New York, among others.Using his expertise in welding different alloys, certified commercial welder Solbert creates not only monumental metal sculptures, such as Transform, VII, but smaller interior sculptures and custom jewelry fashioned from silver, copper, bronze and brass.
Solbert finds the challenge of moving from large to small scale works enables him to develop a graceful rhythm apparent in all of his works. He crafts precious metals for his jewelry and steel is the chosen material for his sculpture. The inspiration for his work is drawn from the ocean floor and the choreography of dances from all around the world. His jewelry is elegant and striking as the pavé diamonds,14k gold, and sterling silver play into his designs.
