Galerie Kuzebauch will make its third appearance at Révelations fair in Paris with its exhibition Sculpting in Glass. The exhibition will be located in Grand Palais, stand F1.
The idea behind the curator’s pick is to draw attention to the current trends in glassmaking towards experimentation and challenging boundaries. Their approach to glass primarily involves sculpting their material of choice.
Martin Janecký comes from a family of glassmakers and was literally raised with glass. He became famous when he mastered a technique called „inside sculpting“ – the shaping of a steaming hot glass bulb from inside.

Anna Polanská graduated at UMPRUM in Prague and currently heads the departement of cut glass at the famous glassmaking school in Železný Brod. In her set of glass vases, she evokes the structure of honeycombs and points out the contrast between nature and her work.

Josef Divín teaches glass design in Valašské Meziříčí and at Prague’s UMPRUM. His lightweight objects also resemble nature. It is obvious from the maps created from melted silver foil attached to the surface of the vases or by the cut necks of the vases.

The fourth artist presented by Kuzebauch Gallery is Ondřej Strnadel who studied industrial design at the Tomáš Baťa University in Zlín and now teaches at the glassmaking school in Valašské meziříčí. His hand-blown objects are purely abstract. He uses asymmetrical interventions to create the illusion of motion and fluidity.
