Glass artist, designer and teacher Pavel Hlava was one of the most prominent and influential personalities of Czech glass in the second half of the 20th century. A graduate of the glass school in Železné Brod (1939–1942) and the UMPRUM in Prague (1942–1948), he worked as a glass designer at the Institute of Housing and Clothing Culture (ÚBOK) between 1959–1985 and then worked as an independent artist. Throughout his career, he has devoted himself to the design of utilitarian glass, including automatic production, light objects and realizations, glass in architecture and free creation. A large collection of his works is also part of the collection fund of the Museum of Glass and Bijoux in Jablonec nad Nisou.
The exhibition will last until September 17, 2023 and is located in a permanent exhibition.
