Legends of Czech Glass

15th March 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The 1950s-70s saw a renaissance in Czech glass design that re-established the Bohemian region’s global reputation in this area. From behind the Iron Curtain, skilled designers pushed the boundaries of 20th century glass design and produced unique art glass masterpieces that went on to inspire visually stunning, highly innovative and commercial ranges. Despite this, the designers responsible were rarely named. Until today, the designs they produced have been typically forgotten or misattributed. This lecture reveals the work of seven influential designers across cut, blown and pressed glass, and considers the economic and political context that affected it.


Mark Hill is an antiques and modern design specialist, an expert on the BBC Antiques Roadshow, and a researcher, collector, dealer and published author in postwar Czech Glass. He will be bringing his books Sklo: Postwar Czech Glass Design and Skrdlovice & Beranek: Legends of Czech Glass to the lecture.
