    They aren't everyone's cup of tea in Czech glass but the sensuous lines and flower-like openings, as well as the colours are wonderful, to my mind. The only thing lacking in comparison to pre-war glass are surface textures, but these are mimicked by the pulling and pinching of the glass. I think, for me, the whole thing about post-war glass is light on artifice and makes the material and its properties the focus.

      Absolutely agree with you Ian!
      There is never any doubt that these are glass and formed by hand.
      Sensuous is the word!
