Reasonig of necessity of the project includingthe description of the default state

Context of the contemporary czech glassworking art carries symbols of this age: it is atomised into small workshops, it lost the aureola of exceptionallity and does not show transformations of such dimension, thanks to which was performance of e.g. Stanislav Libenský and Jaroslava Brychtová in the age of their contribution to the melted glass sculpture or the object. In this age does not exist a center especially for the work of artists with amterial such as glass. It is of course given by costliness of the entire technology of melting and processing of the molten glass. Realization areas in which glassworks usually does not count with greater realizations and so they use school workshops, where it is limited by the teaching.
