Martin Janecky began working with glass at the age of 13 at his father's factory in the Czech Republic. His secondary school training concentrated on the creation of glass art in Novy Bor and introduced him to artists and designers from around the world that hired him to execute their ideas. In 2003 Martin made his first trip to the United States. While working for other artists he was able to add to his already well-developed skill set and knowledge of the material. He has been a visiting artist and instructor at various glass programs such as The Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass, Pilchuck Glass School, and Penland School of Craft. Martin Janecky is considered to be one of the best glass sculptors working today. He is represented by the Habatat Gallery and has exhibited his work in galleries and museums all over the world.
