Ivana Bacik

IVANA Bacik’s story begins in Bohemia, then known as Czechoslovakia, where a talented ornamental glassmaker called Charles Bacik was feeling increasingly threatened by the rise of the totalitarian  Communist Party of Czechoslovakia in the 1940s.

Charles Bacik worked his connections with Irish business and soon found himself in Waterford engaged in the famed cut glass business there.
