In Greece "Cloris" was the goddess of Spring, in Rome she was called "Flora".
Floral motifs are frequent in the art of glass and now that it is spring it is appropriate to remember them.

Floral motifs are frequent in the art of glass and now that it is spring it is appropriate to remember them.
In the Czech glass, with the name of FLORA, numerous models have been baptized. They are well known to those created by František Koudelka for Prácheň <a href="https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1CHZL_esES730ES730&q=Pr%C3%A1che%C5%88+Franti%C5%A1ek+Koudelka+Flora&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjK_fKXr4TiAhWPz4UKHUfhBDIQsAR6BAgJEAE&biw=1355&bih=640">here</a> but also Harrach
and many other factories this name was used; Moser has a wide floral range <a  href="https://www.moser.com/art-engravings/flora">here</a>
and we also remember those for the school of Kamenický Šenov made Pavlína Hozáková.
In 1978, Jiří Šuhájek designed these exquisite "flowers" for Crystalex.

En Grecia “Cloris” era la diosa de la Pimavera, en Roma se llamó “Flora”.
Los motivos florales son frecuentes en el arte del vidrio y ahora que es primavera resulta oportuno recordarlos.
En el cristal Checo, con el nombre de FLORA, se han bautizado numerosos modelos. Son muy conocidos los creados para Prácheň por  František Koudelka pero también en Harrach
y otras muchas factorías se usó este nombre; Moser tiene un amplio rango floral y también recordamos los que para la escuela de Kamenický Šenov realizó Pavlína Hozáková.
En 1978 Jiří Šuhájek diseńó para Crystalex estas exquisitas “flores”.

*March / 1978 - Nový Bor........ that night Jiří Šuhájek had nightmares. Years later, it would shape them.

I was lucky to have been able to attend an exhibition in Edinburgh last year, of Modern art which used Goya drawings as the backdrop.  :)
You are in good company, bringing them into focus for today.  8)
