Web Description: 
Miluse Roubícková (Czech, b. 1922) designed award-winning, commercial glasswares for the Czech national glassworks at Nový Bor and Skrdlovice that were exhibited internationally. This colorful and animated sculptural plate, Homage to Palissy: Still Life with Fish, is typical of her studio glass. It was inspired by the work of Bernard Palissy, a 16th-century French ceramist and glass painter known for his brightly colored faience plates that featured realistic, modeled still lifes of fish and other marine life.
