About 5 years ago Vit quit his job, bought a torch and started practicing glassblowing almost 24/7.
Soon after, together with his friend EVS 78, he opened the glassblowing studio 78 Glass and started showing his huge talent by making octopus rigs which keep looking more realistic each year.
During the 4th EFFO, just moments before the end of the competition and so close to finish his beautiful octopus entry rig...he broke the piece. Despite the huge pressure he didnt give up and even thought he knew he couldn't win the competition with it , he made a spoon pipe instead, teaching us we should never give up .
THe year after he has won a 3rd place judges choice e last year he finally won the competition.
"It's an everyday challenge to make next piece better than previous and to understand how the glass chemistry works. I was amazed by the beauty of glass and quickly understood I could never quit it." VIT
