Glass made by Andrej Jakab is highly distinctive among the artists from the older, middle and younger generations as well as among some of the world’s glass artists. It places emphasis on abstraction and geometric principles. It fascinates by the way of presenting and defining geometrical shapes and volumes both internally and externally. It displays sharp and rounded edges, faceting, surface areas and planes, and is clear and coloured. Visually transparent as well as softly colored in its interior: ruby, emerald, sapphire, agate … In the silence of the glass we can see and hear its reflections, mirroring and the crystal tones of its music. The glass artist Andrej Jakab is its composer and conductor.
