My work has always been inspired by glass. It´s about learning it’s fascinating language and finding out what makes it stand out from other materials. The material itself is the designer, I am at the end of the magical process. I think of myself as the servant to glass.
René Roubíček (1922 – 2018) is a Czech glass-working icon. Glass art as an independent art discipline was actually born in Czechoslovakia, and it was first introduced to the world by Mr. Roubíček, well over half a century ago. His spatial and dimensional abstract compositions, combining metal and glass, caused a sensation at the 1958 Expo in Brussels. Subsequently, Roubíček won the Grand Prix Expo award. His work is represented in many major galleries worldwide.
