The Czech Republic is justly proud of its glass and porcelain. The golden age of Czech glass and porcelain came in the 18th century, when the products of Czech workshops and factories were successfully sold worldwide. Czech glass and porcelain production has always stood out for its accomplished craftsmanship, a rich variety of designs and excellent knowledge of foreign markets and their specific requirements. Nowadays, artists and designers are an integral part of the entire manufacturing process, notes Czech Centre Bucharest for this exhibition.
