Luce Artist Quote
"In my work I am searching for purity and perfection as well as visual impact. Essential to this is achieving balance between the external form and the internal space or soul of the piece." Artist's statement
Luce Artist Biography
Michael Pavlik received his earliest training in glass in his native Prague, where he received an MA in art and design from the College of Applied Arts. After coming to the United States, he studied at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina and taught at Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York. In 1984, he was awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Pavlik no longer blows glass, but instead constructs geometric forms from cast glass.
