|Notes||If you wish to receive coloured or white scallop shell, please include the colour in the notes and we will ship your preferred colour upon availability. Each shell glass is different in size and form due to the shell origin and the glass stand. The shell glasses are fully functional and meant for drinking. But just like most handmade products, they are not dishwasher-safe. We recommend washing the shells with hot water and soap after each use and storing them vertically.|
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.
