MILAN PEKAŘ, CERAMICS DESIGNER AND MAKER OF CRYSTALLINE GLAZED VASES
Milan Pekař is a Czech ceramics designer and maker. He is considered to be one of the most important makers in the field of contemporary Czech ceramics and porcelain. He studied at the AAAD Prague, where he now works as a senior assistant profesor in the Studio of Ceramics.
In the last four years he focused on making a unique form of a crystalline glaze especially on vases. And it were these vases that have won him a Public Award Czech Grand Design 2014.
Milan finds this glaze so fascinating he spends all his available time experimenting on new colour combination.
After spending many countless hours and overcoming many disastrous results, he finally discovered the satisfactory formulation. An ongoing search for new colours resulted in some unusual glazes, specifically the metallic crystalline glazes that are very rare
