Miroslav Liederhaus exhibition
An exhibition honouring glass artist Miroslav Liederhaus
He is said to be the last of his kind. Creating works of art is an essential part of his life - stunt balancing on the tightrope of an exciting experiment is his natural element and perhaps a welcome challenge. Because every burden is also an opportunity.
Glass. Metal. Punk. Inspiration. Idea. Realisation. Idea. Heat. Light.
They started as a blacksmith's workshop, which used its knowledge of iron smelting and after six years of development produced a unique glass furnace. Several professional glassblowers collaborated with them on its development, and now thanks to them you can experience something amazing.
The 8th year of the World Glass Cutting Championship
The largest meeting of the world's top glass masters and experts in the technology of traditional manual and modern robotic grinding.
The aim of the prestigious international competition is to present cut glass in its broadest sense and in new contexts. We thus pay tribute to the skill and creativity of glass masters and we advocate for the preservation of the glass craft and technological innovation for future generations.
The competition is open not only to professionals, but also to secondary school glass students - future artists, grinders and glassmakers.
