Petr Sklenička - tea pottery CZ
We are happy to introduce young Czech tallent! "It all started during a holiday trip to Southern Bohemia where I first visited a potter’s workshop – it belonged to Martin Hadrava and his huge Kassel kiln impressed me at the first sight. When I came back home, I enrolled in a pottery course at the local primary school where I learned the basics and I went on to study the information I needed on the internet. I like experimenting with different kinds of glazing – I make my own mixtures from ashes and other ceramic materials. I enjoy discovering natural materials – a bowl made from clay I had dug with my own hands, with ash glazing and singed with fire has its special charm."
