Historical Relation:

Sergey Pivovarov.
Pivovarov is an artist, whose addiction you can’t say right away, he can always amaze with some unexpected creative move. He has a wide variety of things, simple, smooth dishes, glasses, decorative items, but more massive than unique ones. Many samples are produced in large batches, which indicates that they know the requirements of production. In 1959, a group of young artist-enthusiasts graduates of the Leningrad Higher Art and Industrial College named after him came to the plant. V. I. Mukhina:

A. Wiener, S. Pivovarov, V. Filatov, G. Chernoscutov. This creative team was led by artist B. Bychkov. Young applicants were determined to redo everything, to create new modern samples of crystal, smooth glass to supplant everything old, bored, outdated. But they faced great difficulties in production, economics and technology. Perseverance and patience were required in order to gradually implement their plans.

In 1960-1961, the artistic and production task was solved at Gus-Khrustalny - to update samples of dishes made of simple glass. A big and serious undertaking was the appeal to smooth glass, which was previously looked at as a semi-finished product that does not have independent artistic value. All the same price list “cuts” that adorned crystal were transferred to colorless glass and glass with a bloom. For many years this circumstance has blocked the path to the fruitful development of art glass. They did not produce smooth dishes for economic reasons, considering it unprofitable due to low cost. So it was in all glass factories.

Gusevsky artists created dozens of samples of smooth glass dishes for implementation in production. They received the approval of the artistic council, only after a few years the first mass circulations of B. Bychkov’s glasses, G. Chernoscutov’s “Necklace” glasses, V. Filatov’s “Smooth” devices, and B. Bychkov’s “Onions” came off the assembly line. This first series of dishes, which was in great demand by customers, consolidated the recognition of smooth glass that meets the requirements of simplicity and expediency, and decided its fate in production.

Circulations were increased, products were included in the assortment of the plant. Gradually smooth glass began to enrich with color. As early as 1955-1956, a branch of the State Institute of Glass in the city of Gus-Khrustalny developed a crystal melting recipe with the addition of dyes of rare-earth metals neodymium and cerium. At first, expensive material was used in unique gift items. But I wanted to use color with countless shades in plain glass. In 1959-1961, the Institute’s laboratory used concentrates of oxides of these metals, as a result of which the cost of dyes decreased by a factor of fifteen to twenty. So a large gamut of pure delicate halftones of glass (golden, pink-violet, green, blue) was obtained, quickly mastered by Gus-Khrustalny, and later by other factories in the Vladimir region.

Artists of the plant E. Rogov, S. Pivovarov, V. Filatov created several forms of glasses, wine glasses on a smooth thin leg, simple in shape, convenient to manufacture. They began to produce sets, introducing several colors in one set. The new material received an independent life, its decorativeness ensured him success. The color gave different shades depending on the thickness of the glass, delicate and transparent, it thickened in the thickened areas of the subject. Currently, rare-earth glass products have become a mass assortment of many plants in the country (about nine million products are produced at the Gusevsky plant per year).
