After the Symposium, I was also able to attend the School of Jiri Harcuba. It was a smaller group of us, lead by Pavlina Cambalova that met at the Glass Centre in Sazava, just south of Prague. The week started with the opening of an exhibit of works by Jiri, and it was wonderful to be able to spend more time, seeing them change as the light changed over each day in the week. The Glassworks is a wonderful studio, and if you’ve got a chance to to a workshop there, it is worth going
One of the most amusing things we did over the course of the week was engrave glass slides and tell stories with them:
