Lecture by Mark Hill: Legends of Czech Glass

CzechGlassCompoST cMHill

Despite the success of Czech glass in the 1950s-70s, the designers responsible were rarely named. Until today, the designs they produced have been typically forgotten or misattributed. This lecture reveals the work of seven influential designers across cut, blown and pressed glass, and considers the economic and political context that affected it.

Mark Hill is an antiques and modern design specialist, an expert on the BBC Antiques Roadshow, and a researcher, collector, dealer and published author in postwar Czech Glass. He will be bringing his books Sklo: Postwar Czech Glass Design and Skrdlovice & Beranek: Legends of Czech Glass to the lecture.

Tickets £15 including a glass of wine.
