Petr Novák and Mirka Randová - tea pottery CZ

Petr Novák and Mirka Randová are our dear freinds since many years. They founded the Ceramics studio Doupě, where they work on their ceramics and teach. Both have participated in many symposiums and ceramics exhibitions. They use wood-firing technique and make their glazes by themselves from materials available in the Czech Republic. "Woodfiring is not only our continuing of our ancestors’ traditions, but also trying to produce pottery that carries more than exceptional technology; pottery that speaks the language of our souls, ceramics that reflect our way of life." Petr creates rather smaller tea ware and Mirka was known mostly for her magnificent Tea Boats and Puerh Jars, yet some time ago she focused more on porcelain tea ware, and we love the results!
