Bird of paradise

hand cut and engraved underlay vase

  • The shape of the vase was chosen from historical drawing books. It is very balanced and beautiful. The author of the engraved bird of paradise theme is Master Milan Holubek. The colour combination, beryl transcending into an aurora, highlights the story of the motif and its visualisation. The golden rim on a ring and gilded upper-portion of the vase, so as to achieve grandeur, all complete it like the cherry on a cake. The engraving creates lightness and finesse with reference to the traditions, history and shapes of the craft.

The secrets of work by hand

Crystal with tradition from 1857

Each and every Moser art piece requires hours, days, weeks and often months of hand processing in the hands of our master glassmakers. The secrets of glassmaking are traditionally passed down from generation to generation. Becoming a master glassmaker requires years of practice, a great deal of talent and considerable strength: – the glassmaker must hold vases or bowls weighing tens of kilograms while they work.
