The diversification of glass production and the specialisation of European and Czech glassmakers brought to the fore what was to become a widespread phenomenon: cast glass. Essentially, cast glass became a world phenomenon driven by the need to search for new means of artistic expression and simultaneously to establish a sort of independence of the artist of the traditional methods of glass production. Cast glass extended the possibilities of glassmaking and offered refreshing opportunities for experimenting with technologies and shaping traditional material in novel ways. Ever since the 1950s, Czech glass artists have always been ahead of their time and competition – thanks mainly to the pioneering work of Stanislav Libensky and many of his contemporaries and successors. These artists paved the way for art glass and introduced numerous ground-breaking alternatives to the time-proven methods.
