Vladimír Procházka works mainly on art projects in cooperation with architects, especially in the completion of interiors and exteriors of both a modern and historical nature. His pieces belong among the leading work in this field. Equally important are his molten glass sculptures, for which he has received numerous awards at international competitions. Furthermore he successfully participates in auctions, e.g. in London, the USA or Prague.

His sculptures are part of private and public collections in the USA, Japan, Oman, United Arab Emirates and in Australia.

The artist currently lives and works in Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic.
