I am a glass artist, designer and glass painter. I am studying at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague at the Glass Studio. I graduated the study of Art and Craft in Glass – specializing in painting at the Secondary Technical School in Třebon. In my work, I mostly return to the most classic references of Czech glassmaking, which I associate with new impulses. In my works, I try to move the technical and visual boundaries of the glass department.
