Overview of the decors
Bunzlauer Keramik Geschirr, handbemalt von Maria Iwicka.
I was raised in the love of Polish literature and history of art. In such an atmosphere there develops the sensitivity to beauty and curiosity about the world. Dear to me are both Impressionism with its ephemerality of feelings and Art Nouveau with its anxiety and asymmetry. I think that designing and searching for new, universal decorations for different works of pottery is a commercial form of taking from the heritage of Young Poland, a trend in the Polish literature of the turn of the 20th century in which the border between art and craft was obliterated. What I find inspiring is the ability to operate with the color and the richness of decoration techniques to give daily-use pottery vessels beautiful and unique motives that refer to the tradition and original designing ideas.
