Crackled Glass ‘Vase and Bowl’ By Evans Atelier
This crackled glass vase and bowl are on point. The technique which dates back to the 16th century creates a piece that still boasts a great presence today. The glass is immersed in cold water while it was molten hot, thereby cracking the glass. The glass is then reheated and either molded or hand blown into the desired shape. The reheating of the glass seals the cracks. In the right light, the crackled glass produces glorious reflections and shadows. Created by JIŘÍ PAČINEK.
N.B. These crackled glass vase and bowl is hand-made, unique and signed by the artist.

Evans Atelier is a family run business that has built up over the past twenty years. Emerging from a relationship with their co-founders based in California, they are now a 100% Czech owned company. Their studio of authentic art glass is located in the town of Liberec which is nestled among Jizera Mountains in the Czech Republic. Jolana Ctvteckova owns the company and looks to offer non-traditional, contemporary pieces, that are unique and hold a fresh authenticity that can be identified as Evans.
Evans Atelier is a team of creative individuals, working together to create one-of-a-kind pieces. Predominantly working with kiln-formed and hot glass pieces. The Studio collection is created by special production methods. One of their favoured decoration techniques is hand-painting, an adapted method of ‘Under Painting’. Which is borne from their region of Northern Bohemia. Special paints are applied to one side of the glass, in many layers. Which are then burned at intervals. Resulting in unique and distinctive pieces.
The Hot Glass Collection offers hand-formed and mouth-blown glass pieces. Where glorious tones of colours are forged together by some of Czech’s best glass masters to create their vision.
Each piece is signed and provided with a Certificate of Authenticity.
