Meret Smoke Grey Art Glass Vase from the Heroine Collection, 9.8" by KateŇôina Handlov√°

$ 1,395.00

Designed by KateŇôina Handlov√°, the Heroine Collection¬†was inspired by notable Women and focuses on the legacy of Ruckl Glassworks of the Czech Republic, founded in 1846. Many of the carving patterns are unique and are some of the best examples since the work of Carlo Scarpa for Venini.¬†

The delicate hand-cutting evoking animal fur refers to the artist Meret Oppenheim. Her iconic 1936 work Object consists of a cup, saucer and coffee spoon covered in fur. It mixes dreamlike surrealism with a humorous critique of the perception of the female role straddling the erotic and domestic. With her sculptures and objects, Meret broke through the glass ceiling of the male-dominated art world and earned the recognition of the general public. The smoke-coloured vase covered in crystal refers specifically to her famous ‚ÄĚfur‚ÄĚ objects.

 Beautiful and functional.

About the Designer:
As one of the first collections by designer KateŇôina Handlov√° in her position as art director of R√ľckl, the¬†Hero.ine collection is a confident demonstration of the possibilities of working with traditional cut crystal in a modern way, but with reference to its historical heritage. The collection reflects her interest in exploring her own visual language within the R√ľckl brand, where she builds on previous collections, as well as in cut glass technique and technology, which has remained virtually unchanged over the last few centuries. She focuses on haptics, the contrast between matte and polished surfaces and the fragility and strength of glass.

About the Company:
Ruckl, located in the Czech Republic, was founded in 1846.  Czech glass has been known for its artistic and often daring approach to the medium for centuries. Equally adept at form and decor, Mr. Plesl's works for Ruckl are engaging, beautiful and functional.  We are honored to be able to bring Ruckl to your home.
