Jan Kocian is a Coromandel based glass artist. Kocian uses a variety of techniques and tools to create his work. He will often hand make tools which he then uses to sculpt the molten glass. Some of his works are accentuated by grinding and cutting once the glass has cooled and he will create texture by adding glass to the surface of his bowls and platters.
Kocian completed his five years of formal study in traditional glass blowing in his native Czech Republic, he further developed his skills in various European studios. Master Czech glassblower Petr Novotny has been a significant influence in Kocian's career. The advice and knowledge that Novotny imparted has inspired and guided him throughout his practice.
Jan Kocian creates blown glass forms that explore the optical interaction between glass and light.
