To understand the glass as a material, its optical properties, the color and the form were taught to me by my father-in-law glass artist and one of the founders of modern Czech glass – Pavel Hlava. It will still be my pattern. I, by educating the architect, tended to design, which I hope is evident from my work. If I were to name other names, I would like to admire Scandinavian glassmakers and designers, especially A. Aalto and T. Wirkkala, from Germany Klaus Moje, Wolff, from Japan K. Fujita, from USA J. Musler and T. Zynsky and others. Also, most of the colleagues from our country. However, when I talk about design, then I will pronounce the name F. Vízner. And I bow to everyone because I know how difficult it is.
