Towers

hand cut and engraved 3 parts vase

  • the winning design of the "Ludwig Moser Award 2012“ contest of talented artists in the category of colleges
  • The words of the author: "Two engraved baroque goblets, which were stacked together, were the inspiration for Towers. The proposal combines cutting, engraving, colour and gold-gilding - traditional glassmaking techniques which I coupled with avant-garde shaping, and I am convinced that the resulting work is interesting, playful and contemporary. Towers is meant to be a unique, invigorating solitaire for the interior. Occasionally, the subject’s use can be changed during social events."

Creator of the piece

Tadeáš Podracký

The secrets of work by hand

Crystal with tradition from 1857

Each and every Moser art piece requires hours, days, weeks and often months of hand processing in the hands of our master glassmakers. The secrets of glassmaking are traditionally passed down from generation to generation. Becoming a master glassmaker requires years of practice, a great deal of talent and considerable strength: – the glassmaker must hold vases or bowls weighing tens of kilograms while they work.
