Josef Divín

Born (°1982) and lives in Czech Republic

Josef Divín was born in 1982 in the Moravian town of Valašské Meziříčí. He graduated at the city’s High School of Applied Arts and Glassmaking and continued his studies at the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague, where he attended Vladimír Kopecký’s and Vladimár Vančát’s studios. The work of Josef Divín is often located on the border, balancing between two opposing poles: glass paintings alternate with objects from hand blown glass; there is the oscillation between the cold nature of metal and the heat of hot glass. The names Divín attaches to his glass objects are mostly simple: Vessels.
