Decorative Glass Sculpture ‘Violet Tone’ by Bystro Design

Erudite decorative glass sculpture ‘Violet Tone’ by the formidable glass duo at Bystro Design Studio.

Marvellous ‘mould melted’ glass piece at a totemic 77cm tall and weighing 20 kgs.

With a fiery sharpness at its head, a crystalline arm and a granite-like base, this piece is a powerful evocation of nature’s strength and fury.

Hand-worked with meticulous detail, this sculpture is akin to a deity and worthy of worship.

A piece of decorative glass sculpture that will dazzle and delight you and your guests for many years to come.

As the piece grows in both charm and art value, you will be very glad you invested so wisely.

Decorative Glass Sculpture Artist

Bystro Design Studio was established in 2005, combining the talents of glass artists Dagmar Pánková and partner Leos Smejkal.

The studio specialises in art glass and glass product design, delivering a range of premium quality items that are perfect for centrepieces for country homes, luxury urban apartments and corporate HQs.

Dagmar and Leos put emphasis on perfecting their hand-crafted treatment of the final pieces. Their pieces can be bold, humourous or exaggerated in style.

The pair met while studying glass making in Kamenicky, Senov, where Dagmar taught glassmaking since 2004. They have now joined forces to build a ground-breaking glass studio.

Dagmar is a contemporary visual artist, born in 1971, who began her career as a designer for Egermann-Exbor glassworks, Novy Bor.

After her studies, where she specialised in painting on glass, she went to the UK in 1995 and attended ceramics courses run by artist David Fry (Newcastle upon Tyne).

In 1997, Dagmar began work on her new collections, in cooperation with leading Czech glass companies such as Klara Hut, Primaglass, Slavia, Ajeto and Sans Souci.

She has exhibited her exceptional work at Pinakothek Der Moderne München, Germany (2006) and the Museum of Decorative Arts Prague, Czech Republic (2008).

Dagmar puts emphasis on form and utility, with a hyperbolic slant and wit.

Leoš Smejkal was born in 1973 and, after studying glass cutting at the Secondary School of Glassmaking in Kamenický Šenov, moved on to the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. It was here at the Academy that he created his first mixed media masterpiece, ‘The Rose Garden’ – a winged, stained glass altar with old german Gothic motifs that pay homage to classic German paintings.

Smejkal has collaborated on many glass projects with Czech glass companies and glass artisans. Since the end of the 90s, he has focused on the glass material itself and has become a master in metallurgical processing. As well as a highly acclaimed glass maker, he is also a master glass cutter as well. He utilises the glass factory Ajeto to produce his work as he feels it is the one that is best equipped to handle the exacting requirements and tough demands he places on his work.
