The Studio of Glass

The Studio of Glass at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design wants to keep the best of the tradition established by professors Kaplický, Libenský and Kopecký.

Glass is a unique and lively material with a significant impact of coincidence and surprise. This is one of the reasons why the work in the glass studio oscillates between fine art and design. This balance should be natural, without attempts to establish any categories.
