Weights: 5.25 lbs. The Chribska glassworks, full name Sklarna Chribska, was founded in the early fifteenth century, and stayed in production until very recently. In 1882 it was bought by the Mayer family. Chribska became part of the Borske Sklo National Corporation during the 1950s. Chief designer at this time was Josef Hospodka, who specialized in sculptural blown glass designs. Hospodka was born in Svihov and was educated at the State School for Graphic Arts in Prague from 1938- 1940. He became a pupil of prof. J Holocek at the Academy of the Arts during the period 1940-1945. Afterwards he became a teacher at the glass school in Novy Bor where he headed glass cutting techniques section. He also worked at Chribska doing coaching classes in moulded glass. In 1956 Chribska opened a new glass furnace and got involved in new glass production techniques. In 1958 Hospodka became the head designer of Borske Sklo and later became a director of that great firm. From 1970 until 1985 he was the Director of the Glass School in Kamenicky Senov and up until the time of his death was designing freelance for Crystalex Novy Bor.
