The following information is from the designer:


HRUSKA glass collection designed by Martin Žampach for Květná Glassworks will be presented at 10th DESIGNBLOK in Prague early October. (7-12.10.2008)


Inspiration for glass collection "HRUSKA" is markedly simple. What a delicious fruit! Wine and champagne goblets are positioned on very decent stem and stronger crown giving to it great stability.


With the shape of the bottles it's even more obvious where the design came from; special features are those caps which also may work as shot glasses. Collection closes with whisky and cocktail glass.

Whole collection consists of: wine 250ml, 350ml, 450ml; wine bottle 1000ml; liquer; liquer bottle 750ml; champagne fluet; champagne bowl; beer glass.

Manufacturer: Moravské Sklárny Květná.

Available for purchase from end of September.

    Beautiful, Martin!!
    I didn´t know there was such an artist with my surname. I´ve always loved glass/crystal things. They are gorgeous. When I was at Czeck R. meeting the land of my grandfather, I really wanted to bring them all with me!
    Congratulations. I´ve been always proud to be a Zampach. Now I have another reason fo that.
