    This is a HUGE and gorgeous cobalt and yellow glass bowl - with one sticker which says HUT Princ Art Glass, made in Czech Republic, and another which says Blue PRAHA, and a signature which says 'Design by A. Valner'. This shallow bowl is about 16 inches across and quite heavy. the colors and design is very striking and difficult to photograph. does anyone know anything about it?

    why isn't there a category for Czech art glass? or is that what Bohemian art glass means?

      i found this information: ALES VALNER

      Ales Valner was born in 1962 in Brno, Czech Republic. Having designed for a number of glassworks in his early career including Glass Art Princ, he went on to establish his own glassworks in 2004.
      Working alongside 4 other artists, Valner's focus is on quality rather than quantity- producing colourful, free blown pieces that are highly decorative and usually sculptural in form. The limited production capacity of his small glassworks means many pieces are unique, usually specially commissioned for exhibitions across Germany & America or for private collections.
