Miraculous Springs / Spa and Commemorative Glass

In this book you will find the best and the most interesting of the unique collection fund – from luxury engraved cups to cheap souvenir glasses from fairs, from high-quality spa drinking cups to common spa cups. It also includes the works of five glass artists – Ivana Houserová, Eva Vlčková, Barbora Křivská, Martin Hlubuček, and Bohumil Eliáš JR – and students of the Secondary School of Glassmaking in Železný Brod, who took on the theme of “miraculous springs” in their very own way.

The book also features a selection of contemporary awards made of glass for the winners of prestigious and popular competitions and surveys (Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Prague Spring, Czech Nightingale, Czech Lion, Thalie, Stardance, Magnesia Litera, Effie, Fresh Film Fest, Ice Hockey Extraliga Nice Guy of the Year, Nordic World Ski Championships in Liberec) and profiles of three traditional producers of luxury souvenir pieces (Moser, Rückl Crystal, Ajeto).
