The exhibition Melting Edge is a tribute to three outstanding artists – Eliška Rožátová (*1940), Dana Vachtová (*1937), and Jiřina Žertová (*1932), who contributed significantly to the development of Czech studio glassmaking in the second half of the 20th century. They are interlinked by not only a lifelong friendship and participation in many important exhibitions and symposia in the Czech Republic and abroad, but also their studies at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague in the renowned studio of Professor Josef Kaplický. The scope of their work encompasses not only sculpture, but also product design and numerous applications in architecture. The exhibition presents the artists in several creative periods starting from the 1970s up to the 1990s, when they alternately exploited the possibilities of molten glass sculpture, glass objects blown into a mould, or a combination of glass with other techniques and materials, especially painting and metal. Although they represent three utterly different creative approaches to working with glass as a sculptural material, one can see the approaches of the respective artists getting closer to one another in terms of ideas and material, especially during the 1980s. Their fascination with the inner space and the dematerialization of a three-dimensional object, removed as much as possible from the traditional concept of sculpture, is the common feature of the search for artistic expression that only glass provides for. Therefore, the selection of works displayed has been conditioned by the importance of the respective works in the framework of each artist’s individual work as well as by mutual conceptual links.
