SkLO is the product of a modern American design studio and a 400-year-old European craft tradition. SkLO founders Pavel Hanousek, Karen Gilbert, and Paul Pavlak have the shared mission to be the modern expression of hand blown Czech Bohemian crystal. They work exclusively with glassmasters in the Czech Republic, and as designers they seek to express what is unique and specific to the Czech hand blown crystal tradition: The inimitable clarity of Bohemian crystal, the perfect vibrancy of its colors, the Czech ability to hand blow large complex shapes, and their renowned skills at cutting and polishing crystal.

Their design philosophy is rooted in materiality and process. They believe in revealing the underlying nature of the material and the way things are made, resulting in details that make each piece unique. They strive for subtlety, restraint, and beauty.  Visit their website at
