Contrary to most other Czech glass artists Jan Fišar completed a classic sculptural education; this can still be clearly seen in his glass objects. A part of his objects consisted of complicated compositions of slumped, sunken and cut hollow glass, a technique being unique in the world. The uncommitted design of his “baroque” glass sculptures convinced through the instancy of the expression and the originality of the dynamics. With his work Jan Fišar on the one hand expressed philosophical messages and on the other hand he solved with them unique technological problems.
