FRANTIŠEK VÍZNER
VASE, 1962

This vase, by one of the most important Czech glass artists, was produced as part of Vízner’s diploma work at the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague. It marked the start of a collection of pressed glass vases that Vízner made between 1962 and 1967 for Sklo Union in Teplice. It is proof that even a mass-produced item intended for a wide range of consumers can be high art.

pressed crystal glass, h. 13.7 cm
