Biography: Jiří Harcuba

Jiří Harcuba
Jiří Harcuba

Jiří Harcuba (1928 - 2013) was widely regarded as a glassmaker who deserved to be called a "legend." He was born into a glassmaking family, and his admiration for the famous 19th-century Bohemian engraver Dominik Biemann led him to learn the craft. He received a classical education in glass and sculpture at the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague, where he was appointed director in 1990. His work is widely collected, and it may be seen in major museums worldwide, including The Corning Museum of Glass.
