One of the biggest movies in the world at present, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, has a Czech connection. The Netflix hit heavily features crystal sculptures made by a small company from North Bohemia.
The current number one film globally on Netflix is Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.
Rian Johnson’s big budget movie stars such names as Daniel Craig and Kate Hudson – and a large number of Czech-made crystal sculptures.
They are the work of the company Pačinek Glass, which is based in Kunratice u Cvikova in North Bohemia.
Founder and master glass maker Jiří Pačinek says collaboration began when the film’s producers came across the name after entering “Czech glass” in a Google search.
It was a demanding commission, with 60 or so pieces – originals and copies – having to be completed in around a month.
