Miloš Bohuslav Volf (1915-1983) was a humanist scientist (spoke: Czech, English, German, French, Latin, Italian, and Russian), a specialist in crystal chemistry, developed patents such as the famous "Atil" and "Simax" for the firm Kavalier. Author of books of his specialty, university professor and representative of the Czechoslovak glass industry in international organizations. In 1940 - 45, as a young graduate in Biology and Chemistry, he entered the firm's chemical department - ČMS Reich Krásno - where he would coincide and be technically involved in the work of designers as restless as he was: the brothers Karel and František ZemeK, Milena Velíšková, Ludvika Smrčkova and an already experienced glass worker Emanuel Beránek; One day, possibly assisted by the latter, experimentally (we do not know of any other of his designs) he was encouraged to create this friendly and successful kitten that has continued to be produced by different hands and in various factories until today.

Autor de libros de su especialidad, profesor universitario y representante de la industria del vidrio Checoeslovaco en organismos internacionales. En 1940 - 45, siendo un joven licenciado en Biología y Química, entró a trabajar en departamento químico de la firma -ČMS Reich Krásno- allí coincidiría y se implicaría técnicamente en el trabajo de diseñadores tan inquietos como él: los hermanos Karel y František ZemeK, Milena Velíšková, Ludvika Smrčkova y un ya experimentado trabajador del vidrio Emanuel Beránek; un día, posiblemente asistido por este último, a modo experimental (no conocemos ningún otro diseño suyo ) se animó a crear este simpático y exitoso gatito que no ha dejado de producirse por diferentes manos y en diversas factorías hasta el día de hoy.

Sometimes the minds of great artists, such as Matura, suffer from melancholy and imagine a humanity destroyed by volcanoes in simultaneous explosion. To stigmatize her delusions, she is pleased to materialize her nightmares in works of art.
En ocasiones la mente de los grandes artistas, como Matura, sufre de melancolía e imagina una humanidad destruida por volcanes en explosión simultánea. Para estigmatizar sus delirios se complace en materializar sus pesadillas en obras de arte.

I've just seen your post about Professor Volf.  Very informative and it blows my mind how accomplished and just ... how clever some people are. 

I love that cat also and your Artwork does it justice :)

1937 - Europe quietly prepares for the second great war.
Paris - World's Fair: The Heinrich Hoffmann house obtains first medals for several of its products, including this chess set by Zdeněk Juna.
It seems that the war destruction wiped out most of these crystal chess sets. Today it is difficult to get a complete case and its collectors are content to own only some of its pieces.

1937 – Europa se prepara en silencio para la segunda gran guerra.
Paris – Exposición Universal : La casa Heinrich Hoffmann obtiene primeras medallas para varios de sus productos entre ellos este juego de ajedrez de Zdeněk Juna.
Parece que la destrucción bélica acabó con la mayoría de estos ajedrez de cristal. Hoy resulta difícil conseguir un estuche completo y sus coleccionistas se conforman con poseer tan solo alguna de sus piezas.

I must confess that I have a special respect and great admiration for the work of Adolf Matura. Specializing in cut glass after his secondary studies at Železný Brod and higher in Prague, his designs gradually focused on pressed glass in whose specialty he reached high levels of authority and institutional responsibility.
* Your "Praha" design was applied in multiple formats.

Debo confesarles que siento un especial respeto y una gran admiración por la obra de Adolf Matura. Especializado en el vidrio tallado tras sus estudios secundarios en Železný Brod y superiores en  Praga, sus diseños se fueron centrando con el tiempo en el cristal prensado en cuya especialidad alcanzó altas cotas de autoridad y responsabilidad institucional.
*Su diseño "Praha" se aplicó en multiples formatos.

There is a legend according to which the spirit of Picasso fueled the fire in the Škrdlovice ovens.
On certain days its designers, in ecstasy, made chandeliers to spread that divine light.

Existe una leyenda según la cual el espíritu de Picasso alimentaba el fuego de los hornos de Škrdlovice.
Ciertos días sus diseñadores, en éxtasis, fabricaban candelabros para difundir esa luz divina.

The flower set that Jitka Forejtová designed for Rudolfova Hut in 1950's consisted of three elements: Bowl, frog and the beautiful female.
  Many of these pieces have been broken or missing, but all the brooding and pensive young ladies were saved.


El  set para flores que Jitka Forejtová diseñó para Rudolfova Hut en 1950´s se componía de tres elementos:
 Plato,”rana” y una linda señorita.
Muchas de estas piezas se han roto o desaparecido, pero todas las señoritas melancólicas y pensativas se salvaron.

The trees at LOETZ
 are so radiant, allegorical, statuesque and beautiful that they obscure the forest.

Los arboles de LOETZ
 son tan radiantes, alegóricos, esculturales y hermosos que impiden ver el bosque.
