Authenticity of expression in its genuine raw form - whether in the abstract, figural or conceptual form. Deliberate innovation as an intellectual adventure. New materials or new unexpected combination of known materials. A new view of the function and functioning of the objects - new design.
The norms of vulgarized functionalism and rationalism no longer apply. The refreshing lesson of postmodern plurality and unlimited freedom has brought something significant. Everything that follows is subject to more rigid discipline again but just rationality and a matter-of-fact approach are not enough.
At the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague we offer a master degree in Ceramics and Porcelain. They combine with playfulness, emotion, wit and often surprisingly elaborated details, achieving unexpected harmony and originality. Geometry is no longer a dogma but becomes poetry.
