Zdenek Lhotsky – exhibition of drawings and glass objects at BBLA – Bohemian Benevolent and Literary Assocciation in New York. Open Monday – Friday 10AM – 5PM, 321 E 73rd Street, NY 10021.
Zdenek Lhotsky first emerged as a distinctive artist during his studies at the glass studio of Stanislav Libenský in the late 70s and early 80s. However, it was largely after his graduation that he earned his place in world glass-making through his series of successful works created in glass over decades and his renown as a technological expert in kiln cast glass technology. For an example, for a considerable length of time he has been exploring the possibilities of creatively using the special cast glass technology known as “Vitrucell,” the recipe for which he developed himself and which so far nobody has managed to copy.
At the moment Lhotsky is producing the Sarcophagus for the Danish Royal Family – the largest kiln cast glass sculpture in the world what is could be one of the reasons why that the April 2016 edition of the prestigious Wallpaper magazine listed him among the 12 most significant Czechs influencing the design world.
