FRANTIŠEK VÍZNER
BOWL, 1979

The vases and bowls that Vízner has made in his studio since the seventies are wonderful sculptural objects. They are fascinating in their pure forms and velvety surfaces, with an inner light and unique colours, for Vízner works with glass used for Czech costume jewellery. Unlike most glass artists, he does not work with heat, but sculpts his perfect geometrical forms from large blocks of glass using a handheld grinder.
