The Story behind Glass

Martin Vogg takes us on a voyage through the history of glass production and design in the Czech-Lower Austrian region, richly illustrated by Daniela Matejschek. The author looks back on prehistoric glass production and the medieval forest glassworks, discusses Bohemian crystal glass, hyalite glass and other glass innovations, focuses on renowned figures in the glass industry such as Josef Meyr and Carl Stölzle, describes artistic glass design around 1900, highlights the differences in the development of glass north and south of the Iron Curtain after 1945, and finally takes us back to the starting point of his journey – the present day.
