Libenský Red Pyramid - Family

Listen as curator Tina Oldknow describes Red Pyramid by Czech artists Stanislav Libenský and Jaroslava Brychtová. Libenský and Brychtová, a husband and wife team, collaborated for more than 40 years. These artists pioneered the technique of mold-melting, where chunks of glass are placed in molds, allowed to slowly melt inside a kiln, then slowly cooled in a process called annealing.
