Petr Hora began his studies in 1965 at the Applied College of Glass-making in Zelezny Brod, where Libensky acted as Director. In 1971, after his studies at the Glass-making School near Trebon, Hora began working at the Beranek glass factory in Skrdlovice. Hora advanced with the company, and in 1987 he became the Director. Because of the political changes in Czechoslovakia , all the factories that had been taken over by the government were returned to the original owners. This event was the catalyst for Hora’s establishment of his own studio. Hora’s solo career can be divided into distinct periods. The first period was characterized by monochromatic objects that were based on elemental shapes such as the cone, pyramid, arch and wedge. In the next phase he combined segments of contrasting colors and joined different geometric shapes to create a sort of imaginary architecture. Primary geometric shapes and architectonic forms continued to captivate Hora until today.
