Adolf Matura

Adolf Matura was active in several glassmaking disciplines. He is known as a creator of cut and carved glass and a designer of pressed glass, but his designs also include a set of teacups and teapot made of borosilicate glass. In the beginning his work focused on designs for tableware and accessory glass formed by both blowing and cutting; over the course of the sixties he worked with the Moser glassworks, for which he created a number of designs. From the mid-sixties the focus of Adolf Matura’s artistic work shifted to pressed glass, to which he remained true until his death.
