Marek Cecuła/Modus Design at Lipowa 3 Gallery


Design versus Tradition is a selection of porcelain collections created in the Ćmielów Design Studio in the years 2015-2017. The activity of the studio located in the very heart of the porcelain manufacture, inspires and influences the character and direction of the creative process. The resulting projects and individual collections reflect the two-way activity of the studio, creating both unique handicraft and industrial design. The exhibition is an example of integration between art, design and industry. It presents three groups of works: decorative and utility objects, tableware sets and artistic forms. Many of those works originated in a group process, and they represent the symbiosis of the common creativity of the Ćmielów Studio.
