Metelek was a well-known glass artist and talented painter, the older son of Alois Metelak, who was the fouder of the glass-school in Zelezny Brod. Because of a strong family tradition Milan Metelak attended this glass school from 1943 to 1947, then from 1947 to 1952 continued at the university VSUP in Prague under professor Stipka. Milan Metelák became the company designer of Harrachov glass in 1955 and he set the course of the Nový Svět glassworks' production for many years to follow.
