“The multi-talented and prolific designer Josef Hospodka began working at the Prachen glassworks, a branch of the Borské Sklo group, in 1969. The simple forms he designed for this range in the same year almost appear like mechanical components. They were embellished with a variety of randomly applied shapes, including spots impressed with a grid-like pattern, prunts impressed with a circle or stylised leaves, and randomly trailed and pooled glass impressed with any of the aforementioned motifs.  All were a new departure for Hospodka, and are quite unlike the curving, bud- or flower-like designs he produced during the 1950s & 60s for the Chribskà glassworks.” (Mark Hill)
