Rudolf Burda

Rudolf Burda

“The greatest inspiration for me is the universe that is fulfilling my life’s credo of being the energy of the big bang, which has neither beginning nor ending. In my work I’m following minimalistic legacy and I am searching for the ideal and pure form. My aim is to contribute to the preservation of the old tradition of hand-blown glass together with developing and perfecting it.”

* 1973

 

Rudolf Burda studied at the School of Applied Arts in Turnov (Czech Republic) major of artistic blacksmithing. From 1992 to 1993 Rudolf absolved an internship in California, USA, after his return the Rudolf Burda Studio was established in the Czech Republic.
