Web Description: 
During the 1950s, Adolf Matura (Czech, 1921-1979) designed pressed, engraved, and cut glass for commercial production. Around 1957, he and the designer Pavel Hlava (Czech, 1924-2003) developed cased and cut glass vases with shaped cores that are still in production today. In 1958, he was appointed to the glass section of the Czech national Center of House and Clothing Culture, where he remained until his death. Using restrained forms and decorations enriched with optical effects, Matura developed artistic designs compatible with industrial manufacturing processes.
