He has started his career in glass field as early as in the 1990, when he had joined Chribska 1414 Glass Works.

He had never forgotten though about his own designs which he had at that time pursued in his free time.

PAČINEK GALLERY

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.

Herba crystallus, Serpenta multichroma, Columna ledum, or Kunraticia lucida.

None of these flowers can be found and seen anywhere else than in Jiří Pačinek’s Glass garden in Kunratice by Cvikov.

Come and see it anytime through a day, since the garden looks differently in a daybreak, in a midday sunshine, or at a sunset… You will be astonished when visiting and seeing it sprout in the spring, in the summer, when butterflies are flying from a real flowers to a glass ones, in the fall, when rich colors are going from the glass flowers to surrounding plants and trees, or in the winter, when glass blossoms are covered by the snow and ice…

There are new glass plants appearing every year. In the spring 2020 there will be for example Splendor Bohemicus, Vitrum candida or Hyloas polychroma.

Glass garden is open yearlong, without any prior ordering and under free entrance.
