Glass of geometric shapes

Compared with Italian and French glass, Czech glass art features more geometric and abstract shapes. For generations glass masters in those countries explored the physical properties of glass.

Pavel Trnka's works are among the most difficult kinds of glass sculpture to create, involving the complex use of colors within geometrical shapes with the highest levels of craftsmanship.

For example, he creates one round piece comprised of three parts with almost undetectable fissures. The light and colors within the piece seem to shift as the visitor moves around in a work that is both simple and complex.
