Studio of fused glass sculpture
The tradition of the studio dates back to the middle of the last century, when it was founded by world-famous glass artists Stanislav Libenský and Jaroslava Brychtová. The team of experienced glass technologists, cutters and moulders realises unique projects all over the world (e.g. USA, Japan, Europe) and significantly advances the possibilities of glass design. The studio's production focuses on the realization of large-scale sculptures for artists, designers and important museums and galleries, on the production of artistic elements for architecture and Zdeněk Lhotský's original work.
He is a continuator of the tradition of fused glass sculpture and the current owner of the studio. In his work he combines artistic research and technological research to create original structures and shapes at the limit of the possibilities of glass sculpture. Bold realizations in architecture, large fused sculptures, bowls and objects using Vitrucell technology, drawings and prints - all this refers to the wide range of Zdeněk Lhotský's work. He is represented in the collections of major museums and galleries worldwide.
