Father and son Eliáš are both very well known Czech studio glass artists. Their main specification is creating glass sculptures by gluing and painting separate glass plates together. This technique offers wonderful spectacle. As you walk by the sculpture, you see different story inside, due to the subject among the glued glass plates. Elias Jr. also concentrates on massive melted glass sculpture, combined with metals.
Works of father and son Elias are a part of many worldwide art collections.
