They have always been particularly interested in the artists of the Studio Glass Movement, a school that emerged in the United States in 1962, when Harvey Littleton had the idea of building kilns that could be used in studios, thus freeing artists from the need to have their designs made into a sculpture in a glass factory. The Mendel Collection consists primarily of works executed since the 1980s in which sculpture predominates. The collection contains examples of the major international schools, mainly those of the United States and the Czech Republic.
