Exhibition HOT HOT HOT Glass, ceramics and porcelain from A to Z
On April 14, the exhibition HOT HOT HOT Glass, ceramics and porcelain from A to Z was officially opened, organized by the Association of the Glass and Ceramic Industry of the Czech Republic with the Museum of Glass and Jewelery in Jablonec nad Nisou in the National Technical Museum in Prague. The exhibition was created on the occasion of the International Year of Glass and the 30th anniversary of the Association of the Glass and Ceramic Industry of the Czech Republic, founded in 1990. Its aim is to show the general public how varied and multi-layered the essence of the contemporary Czech "art of fire" is, from industry to design, art and research, from raw material to final product.
Almost 500 exhibits, including AGC car glass and glass for architecture, are displayed on a total of 45 panels of Planibel, Clearsight, Stopsol and Imagin glass from AGC. Their production and installation was ensured by AGC Processing Teplice. More information about the AGC installation team can be found here.
"Our goal was to show the visitors, especially the lay public, the real picture of the Czech glass and ceramics industry today. Present products that are modern, meet design trends and growing functional requirements, and are also environmentally friendly. With this step, we want to bring them back to the light from everyday anonymity, so that each of us remembers what glass, ceramics and porcelain bring to our everyday life. How much we would miss them without them. My wish is that when visitors leave this exhibition, they will realize again how unique, wonderful and useful these materials and their products are. And to support us with their permanent interest, because we will continue to develop the tradition of Czech glass and ceramics. It is our mission," explains Petr Mazzolini, president of the Glass and Ceramic Industry Association and director of the processed glass division of AGC Flat Glass Czech.

The exhibition is open to the public at the National Technical Museum (www.ntm.cz), Kostelní 42, Prague 7 from April 14 to October 2, 2022, from Tuesday to Sunday.
