Precious stones from the Bohemian Paradise

The brothers Jan and Václav Fišers from Turnov. Their alleged voyage to Venice, five years of efforts to seize the local secret of secrecy, return to Turnov, dozens of wasted attempts and then - finally success! In 1711 they made the first glass for the production of artificial stones.


It was in 1712, when Elias Müller built his glassworks on the estate of the Harrach Counts in Jilemnice. It continued in the traditional production of glass, which was produced on the border of the Giant Mountains and the Jizera Mountains in the middle of the 14th century. Even today, you can see not only metallurgical production and blowing glass, but also a hundred-year-old grinding shop. It is driven by a water turbine and transmissions used to distribute the driving force.


Elias Palme, one of the most famous luminaire manufacturers, continued the tradition of chandeliers in Kamenický Šenov. Industrial production of chandeliers was started in 1724 by Josef Palme in Prácheň.


Surely you would not find in the whole Principle and in the broad surroundings of a person who would say a crooked word about Jan Šourek. After all, it was as if he had come to the Principle of Prosperity and Welfare. As soon as he took possession of the reeve, life in the village began to turn for the better. He was one of the first to venture into the world for business.


Josef Riedel, king of the Jizera Mountains glassmakers, was born in Hejnice in 1816. He was the representative of the sixth generation of the glass family and imprinted his footprint indelibly on the slopes of the Jizera Mountains.



Josef Pfeiffer - Jablonec entrepreneur and mayor, who was involved in the development of jewelery exports. Everything is confirmed at the imperial court and in 1866 Jablonec became a town during his reign.

BLOWN BEAD and its way to the tree

People can make sense of time and numbers, but not us, beads. However, I have heard that they have been blowing me in the mountains for more than a hundred years. As a bead would put it, that is a long time. You, who have never seen how a bead is born, you don´t know how beautiful life can be....


In 1920 the first Czech glass school was founded in Železný Brod, thanks to which the town became a center of glass art.

We are Evans Atelier, a family glass company with a twenty-year history, fresh ideas and unceasing creativity.

In our collection of art glass interior accessories you can find products that are entirely created in our workshop - it means from designs through production and hand painted decoration to the final touches. We cut the glass sheets into the appropriate shape, grind them, insert them into hand-made ceramic moulds and let them bend according to the mould shape at high temperatures. It´s so-called slumped glass technology. Subsequently, bowls, plates, vases, wall decorations and other objects shaped in this way are hand-painted.

We use a unique way of painting which we developed on the principle of so-called historical underpainting. It is a method of gradual glazing, layering of colours. Thanks to their overlapping and interweaving, a unique spatial effect is created. Then the painting is finally sealed in the oven which ensures durability and resistance.

Another group of exceptional products in our collection are hand-shaped blown glass objects. According to our designs, these are created exclusively in friendly glassworks throughout the Czech Republic.

We like very much to participate in special projects where we design and manufacture glass accessories or decorations for a specific interior at the customer's request, whether it is an apartment, hotel or yacht. Our technology is flexible and enables both original piece creation and large-scale production.

We enjoy creating and it makes us happy when we can add a little colour into our everyday life!
