LapiNska PORCELANA - FOXES
personal project, porcelain and ceramic design, graphic design | 2013
Łapińska Porcelana is my own brand where I design and create porcelain handicrafts. The most important aspect of my work is attention to detail and ensuring no two pieces are alike. The idea blossomed from my love of porcelain- the most beautiful material on earth.
"This passion was born during the artist’s studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Faculty of Design. That is also where the designer created the, widely discussed at the time, project: A Dream of Warsaw. It is a collection of six miniature ceramic representations of Warsaw’s famous modernist buildings. That is when Łapińska decided she would one day create her own brand dedicated to porcelain, a brand for which she would be solely responsible since, as she says, this gives one true independence.
Łapińska Porcelana is the result of combining traditional craftsmanship with a modern approach to design. The artist looks for inspiration in many different places: Polish porcelain design in the 50’s and 60’s, the geometry of modern art or hand painted Chinese porcelain.”
