Creative work

Czech and foreign original tea pottery, mostly wood-fired, wooden tea untensils or tea textile. The world we are still discovering and we try to support, like by publishing articles about authentic craft. That it has not dissappeared from this world yet.

Jaroslav Marek - tea pottery CZ

Jaroslav was born in 1984 and he met pottery already at primary school. "I use a Japanese anagama kiln, which gives pottery specific colour and natural ash glazing at high temperatures around 1,300°C. I like testing new clays, which I collect and treat myself. The knowledge of how kilns work is important for me and I build wood-firing kilns as well. For me, the contact with clay is a meaningful creative outlet − and an everyday challenge."
