"Lukas Novak perceives glass as a material that is capable of transmitting emotions and thoughts through forms, shapes and technologies of processing. At one stage, he chose mirrors as a favorite medium in glass world. Lukas changes material by means of unusual forms, which he subsequently transforms into original products. He uses sophisticated visual morphology which is achieved by rare combination of highest technologies as well as traditional glass tools and methods. He works with narrative function of mirrors, which resemble paintings.  Storyline turns into contemplative experience. Except for precise beveled edges of mirrors Lukas works with hand blown glass. This form is particularly interesting for him because of unpredictability of the outcome. With his objects, he reflects either contemporary events and historic pieces which he recreates with carefully chosen forms and technologies. By that, he creates interesting new semantic formulas and imaginative impulses.
