Hans Frode was born in 1951 in Västerås. He studied at Byam Shaw Art School in London. He has been working in New York since the 1980-ies and he has participated in the development of Urban Glass, situated in Brooklyn. At Urban Glass he learnt to work in neon and in pate de verre.

The glass scuplture is illuminated frpm behind by a neon tube in different colors.

Hans Frode also created pure sculpture in pate de verre and neon, in the shape of fruit plates or even instruments, e.g. glass violins.
