20077 has those qualities to perfection too (
13284 too (
But others need to be seen at strange angles to get the best...

842 ( 2042 ( 1502 ( 5200 ( 5122 ( 13005 (

In some cases the form wasting the full potential of the designs optics. But of course the constraint to produce functional domestic ware has to be accepted - it would be interesting if someone today were to re-use the textures on decorative forms that have them the ideal display form.

I guess the lens vase ( is one of the most perfect for both form and texture.

The Brabec 5200 and the Jurnikl 20077 are high on my wishlist.  Whereas Jindrich said the Vizner 13139 is reminiscent of a woman's body, the Jurnikl, in my opinion, is a male form -- broad shoulders and small hips.  Lovely!

The Matura 13284 is in my collection... heavy, masculine, with wonderful optical properites... by far one of my very favourites!  I've also got two Urban 'Moravia' vases -- they're alright, though I don't ooo and awww over them. Funnily, they do look more attractive on the inside.

The other pieces simply do nothing for me... either too traditional, or otherwise disturbing. :usd:

Michael, you didn't like the 20082?  Goodness me, I can't imagine why...  Depending on how the light falls on it, it sometimes seems to sparkle and move.  I'm perfectly pleased with mine. ;D
