In 2010, the glass school in Železný Brod celebrates its 90th anniversary. On this occasion, it has prepared in partnership with the Museum a publication abounding in lively colours, shapes and glass fantasy. Contemporary works created by the school’s students are shown in interaction with outstanding creations from the early years of the institution’s existence, designed by its instructors Alois Metelák, Jaroslav Brychta, Oldřich Žák, Ladislav Přenosil, Zdeněk Juna, and others. It features an extensive and variegated collection of glass vases, dishes, figurines, jewellery and objects executed in every imaginable technique that blends exquisite craftsmanship with inventive creativity. The publication traces the school‘s path toward the world recognition of Czech modern glass, ranging from Art Deco to the latest artistic concepts realized in this noble material. Furthermore, it indicates that the future of Czech glassmaking as a treasured national heirloom rests not only in the preservation of its tradition, but above all in the further enhancement of the internationally unique system of specialized glass education and training.

The book was issued by the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague in collaboration with the High School of Applied Art for Glassmaking in Železný Brod to accompany the exhibition held in the Museum from June 17th to September 19th, 2010.
