Ivana Sramkova


A few years ago, I first encountered Ivana Sramkova's glass works at a glass gallery in NY.

My eyes were instantly nailed to the shape with a frank and solid presence.


At the same time as being adorable, the form is heading for may seem unwittingly simple in this complex world.

However, she dared to choose these primitive motifs and continued to express the richness and splendor of life in the humorous animal form.

That's why her work now captures the hearts of many around the world.


At this exhibition by Ivana Sramkova, one of the leading artists of contemporary Czech glass, 17 animals including "Big Guardian Dog" will appear from the animal series produced from 2007 to 2008.


We would like to thank all the people who have contributed to the realization of this precious exhibition, and we hope that many people will take a look.
