Gabriel Urbánek has played the role of the chief glass photographer since the late 1960’s. Many times, he has received the Czech Grand Design award. His pictures have been published in fine books about historic as well as contemporary Bohemian glass, boasting the great treatment of light, the strong feeling for composition and precision. Urbánek has significantly contributed to the promotion of Czech glass. At the exhibition, visitors will see more than 160 photographs of sculptures, historic or design cups, vases and other interesting fragile items created by masters in their field.
