Thanks Jindrich,
I couldnt find their website  ::)
i suspected 1990s. Did you look at their products? Theyve certainly been influenced by
earlier Czech glass, Skrdlovice , Exbor etc.

'The effort of our founders was to interconnect an old tradition of glasswork in the Highland region with an original creativity and the peculiar artistic style of a young team.'

Andy,
my personal not qualiffied opinion is that this "interconnection with old tradition"  played big role in collaps of Czech art glass industry. Lack of conterporary and fresh designs, modiffication of several times exploited ideas and quite often very horrible handling with colours made new Czech glass stuff not very attractive for buyers. The sad fact is that in country live many excellent glass artists, but their services had not been used. Designs had been made by glassmasters and the result can be seen.
