FRANTISEK ZEMEK

Frantisek Zemek was one of the greatest glass artists to come out of Czechoslovakia, now the Czech Republic, in the twentieth century.  Zemek died a relatively young man in 1960, but left a legacy of innovative designs from his work at the Chribska, Zelezny Brod and Mstisov factories.  As with a number of the leading Czech artists of the period, his work is sometimes mistakenly thought to originate from Murano, being typified by organic forms with heavy applied trailing.  The vase on the right is from the Rhapsody range of vessels for which he is most well known.
