U KAHANU is a brand of glass jewellery and small objects by Klára Jägerová. The jewellery is made of wound and blown glass. The individual parts of the jewellery are made by hand using the technique of melting, shaping and decorating the rods at the kahan.
"I started my own work right after graduating from the secondary school of arts and crafts in Jablonec nad Nisou, about 18 years ago. This is before the internet boom, when you worked on old machines and with old patterns and most of the know-how was secret. At that time I started to explore glass in my own way and it was the best choice. A lot of work that "shouldn't go by the stove" started to emerge. Later on, thanks to the internet, I started to study the techniques of the world's glassmakers, buying their tutorials and studying their videos. It was another tremendous rush of living water and original insights into the winding technique for me.
Now I have a new studio in Liberec Františkov, where I create new products using tools and materials from all over the world and I am resuming my activity after many years of parental leave. It is very refreshing and I spend most of my free time doing it. I have added the Tiffany technique to my work, making homemade florals (small greenhouses for flowers) in the shape of crystals.
In the U KAHANU workshop you will not only experience a demonstration of the creation, but you will also be able to try the production at the stove yourself. All jewellery components and tools are also available to complete your own jewellery. I also organize workshops on creating florals.
