My name is Johan Pertl, and I was born and raised in the glass region in Vysočina. After graduating from high school, I spent some time traveling and then began studying again and working. In the years 2015 – 2018, I studied at the Czech Technical University and worked in the DECHEM studio at the same time. Then, I started studying in the Glass Studio at the Prague Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design (AAAD), where I am currently studying. In my glasswork, I am fascinated by the natural and social mechanisms that surround us. I try to create my work so that it does not become obsolete over time both in the aesthetical and practical aspects. I try to create glass artifacts that families can pass down from generation to generation.
