Fragile beauty


Jan Kautman discussed the topic of glass with the ethnographer Irena Pišútová and the art historian Jindra Bakošová, who both have great experience in the researched area. Step by step Kautman gained knowledge and from an ordinary collector became an expert. The biggest motivation for Jan Kautman is the importance of documentation and enlightenment, but also an inspiration.


„I always admired the skills of the craftsmen mastery, whether it was a blacksmith, potter, or carpenter. Each of them works with different material and gives it a great part of himself. But melt a stone in the oven and create a glass or a bottle from it, is simply amazing – one little miracle,“ speaks Jan Kautman about his passion.
