The Museum Store of the NCSML is proud to be the first and only retail outlet in the Midwest to carry products from Prague-based ARTĚL Glass, which features handmade luxury crystal glassware that blends modern design style with traditional Czech craftsmanship. ARTĚL Glass was launched in 1998 by New York-born Karen Feldman, who moved to Prague in 1994. Feldman has taken inspiration for ARTĚL’s pieces from a wide range of sources, resulting in the blend of classic tradition and modern design sensibility that is ARTĚL’s signature.
In addition to ARTĚL’s glassware items, the store will carry the latest edition of Karen Feldman’s award-winning guidebook Prague: ARTĚL Style, which received the Independent Publisher Book Award for Best Travel Guidebook.
In less than 20 years, ARTĚL has become a company of international renown with exclusive clientele such as Rolls Royce, Gucci and Christian Dior. Its creations can be found at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Barney’s and other exclusive, upscale retailers around the world. ARTĚL also designed and creates the award for the recipient of the annual Humanitarian Award from the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity; past recipients include Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton, Tom Hanks and George Bush.
