The Czech Republic has been home to some of the world's most talented glass-cutters and a rich tradition handed down for hundreds of years. Their work is highly prized around the world for its intricate patterns. Last year, master artist Frantisek visited SIU Carbondale's School of Art and Design to share his experience with students interested in learning more about this highly demanding form of art. He began developing his skills as an apprentice glass-cutter at the age of ten and went on to teach at universities around the world. Frantisek talked with our Jak Tichenor during his time on campus prior to last year's International Glass conference held in St. Louis.
