A selection of key works from various decades is accompanied by explanatory chronological texts, including statements by famous representatives of the glass scene. The exhibition shows visitors how and at what time these exclusive works initiated the development of original glass in the world. All of the works that visitors will be able to admire were often created decades ago, but they do not age, they are still aesthetically contemporary, imaginative in concept, revelatory in the technology used and execution.
