Jiří Pačinek has always dreamed of not only own glassworks, but at the same time about own gallery as a place to present his glass objects.
First exhibition and selling space was established and opened in 2008 in the very hearth of glassmaking - in Nový Bor.
This experience later inspired Jiří to move his art and exhibition activities over to Prague, where a gallery under a name TRIPARTIT was established in 2017
as a result of his cooperation with visual artist Veronika Holá.
The gallery as well as Jiří Pačinek’s creation is going through natural development and comes now into new phase under a name PAČINEK GLASS
and is ready to welcome its visitors on a same address and with a same team, but presenting new glass objects, new exhibition concepts and art events...
You can almost feel and touch a glassworks in the gallery spaces, while in very friendly atmosphere we will reveal some of the glassmakers secrets and
let you touch and get to know a glassmakers tools.
