‘Every year Designblok supports innovative designers from all over Europe. We have prepared a small sample of what Designblok has to offer for this year’s London Design Festival. The story of contemporary Czech porcelain is told through five renowned Czech designers, who have become so enthralled with this white material that it has become their main medium of expression. Five varying approaches to porcelain as a material, decorative work and the use of technology. How far can we go with this traditional production material? The interplay between glazes, shards, technical porcelain, painting and salt spraying on classically spun forms. Tradition v. innovation.
