Vases you have never seen before
In the world of ceramics, Milan Pekař is a well-established name. Let us explain why:
In 2006 he graduated from UMPRUM Prague (where he now teaches himself) and a few years later, he started his own studio. He could have experimented with existing techniques, but he wanted to create something new, something no one had ever seen before. So he began researching and testing, mixing and remixing, until – finally – after a series of trials and errors, he developed a new type of glazing. He has been using this technique to create unique vases and other beautiful objects ever since.
What makes Crystal Glazes, as he likes to call them, so special, is that their top layer is disrupted by all kinds of chemicals. The outcome of this process is the most charming patterns imaginable. It is no wonder Milan’s creations are in the catalogues of the world’s most famous shops and galleries – and also in our own!
