Frantisek Janak
« on: June 15, 2012, 01:29:46 PM »
Dear friends,
I just got letter from my friend known Czech glass artist and teacher - Frantisek Janak.
Not good news, at all.

Frantisek is great artist and possibly greater fighter for glass-making education in my country.
Seems to me, that he needs our support now, not only from national collectors and glass lovers, but also internationaly.

His letter is published at our web site:
www.cs-sklo.cz

Thank you for your time
Jindrich

Shocking!
What can we do to support him?
Would this be a suitable organiser of petitions:
http://www.change.org/petitions
where we can get a petition going showing international support for him (and for dismissing the violent "usurper" - nobody who attacks students or anybody else for that matter, at work, should be kept in employmnet.)

I know there is great fear that there will be no more work from masters such as he is, when the facilities for casting huge pieces are gone.
