Jiří Tesař was born 1960 in Nový Bor, Czech Republic.
The unique and inimitable engravings in glass created by Jiří Tesař are based on his rich experience gained during his longstanding artistic career. The classical glass engraving technique is very time demanding, thus he is more oriented on the studio work.
In his original works he uses also modern techniques – fusing or graal. His works don’t copy classical motifs but bring his own, novel ideas and procedures.
He has represented the Czech Republic since the age of 25 years, both in world exhibitions and by manufacturing official royal, presidential and VIP gifts.
Thanks to his high standards of craftsmanship and artistic ability he has won numerous international awards. His work can be found in various collections and museums all over the world.
