Lukáš Houdek

The glassy comedian 

Thanks to its nature, glass is traditionally considered to be a rather serious material. Lukáš, a young Czech glassmaker and designer, disagrees completely! For him, glassmaking is – above all – fun. 

He uses all kinds of techniques, doesn’t shy away from colours, and likes to combine different materials, too. What makes his pieces distinct and recognizable, is that there are – basically – Lukáš’s jokes in disguise. What to expect? Pop-culture references, exaggerating and quite a bit of parody. One of his most notable pieces is a crystal chandelier in the shape of a basketball basket. 

While he (clearly) enjoys humour, one thing he takes seriously is his craftsmanship. And it is paying off.
