The internationally acclaimed artists Libenský and Brychtová pioneered, explored, developed, and defined glass as a medium for contemporary sculpture. The career in glass of this husband-and-wife team spanned more than 45 years. Their art explores ideas about light, color, space, and transparency. Five Parts is an early abstract sculpture that is related stylistically to Meteor, Flower, Bird. The artists used overlapping elements of colorless glass to explore the material’s ability to hold and redirect light, and to emphasize its transparency.
