    Jan Exnar (b.1951) is by far my favorite later Skrdlovice/Beranek designer. The majority of his designs are bold and somewhat cosmic. There’s also humor in his art which I really appreciate.

    The cobalt blue art glass ball vase with a yellow and white ‘galactic swirl’ was designed for Beranek Glassworks in 2002. The animals – absolutely silly-looking yet graceful in form – were designed in 1995.

    I know the animals especially are not everyone’s cup of tea, but for some collectors like myself, they are the crème-de-la-crème of a serious postwar Czech art glass collection. :)

      Thank you, sklo42. That's only part of my Exnar googly-eyed animal display. I've got them on 2 hanging shelves, and also placed here and there among my other glass. :)

      Thank you racer! I completely agree. These animals do make me smile... especially the tall, blue googly-eyed bird with the red beak. :D
