Tadeáš Podracký born in 1989 in the Czech Republic is a young artist, designer, creative personality, and glass enthusiast with a passion for arts and crafts. With an academic training in fine and applied art, he builds his artwork on blurry borders of these two fields. His unique approach to work based on comprehensive historical and material research already built him his significant style recognized around the world. Craft skills and respect for the traditional heritage of glass manufacturing in combination with contemporary aesthetics and themes make Podracký a visionary who can sensitively bring into glass new possibilities and meanings in today’s life.
Although he is known for large generous artistic glass objects, his range of interest also includes product design disciplines such as tableware, tabletops, lighting, or furniture. Podracký developed many interesting projects in collaboration with famous companies. In monumental objects named Dioscuri manufactured in Moser glassworks, he brings a combination of colored glass with leather and precious woods. Every project from Podracký’s body of work is extremely creative and open to different kinds of disciplines. This attitude allows him to find interesting points of view in every piece of his artwork.
