The Czech Republic is justly proud of its glass and porcelain. The golden age of Czech glass and porcelain came in the 18th century, when the products of Czech workshops and factories were successfully sold worldwide. Czech glass and porcelain production has always stood out for its accomplished craftsmanship, a rich variety of designs and excellent knowledge of foreign markets and their specific requirements. Nowadays, artists and designers are an integral part of the entire manufacturing process.
About the design, manufacturing process, the contemporary and traditional Czech glass and porcelain will talk the exhibition curator Petr Nový and of the designers presented, Martin Žampach, the day after the opening, on Thursday, September 11, at 18:00, at Galateca Gallery.
„This exhibition has been presented in Prague, Budapest, Stockholm, Gent, Moscow and Frankfurt and I am happy that we can show it also to the public in Bucharest“, says the Czech Centre director, René Kubášek.
Partners: Embassy of the Czech Republic, Jablonec Museum, CEZ Romania and Staropramen.
