It is Anna Sykora’s delicate porcelain tea cups that hold the most appeal. One can almost imagine them dancing on her potter’s wheel, taking on the gentle patterns as they swirl. The Berlin ceramicist produces the clay-based mixtures for the terra sigillata process of decoration that results in an almost sensual product. Bowls, vases and platters are kissed by blossoms, fine thread-like lines and soft geometrics – their functionality overshadowed by their beauty.
