Following a short break, Pop-Upstart is returning to the CzK Maribor Project Office, where this time we will host the younger generation of ceramics designers, selected by Anja Radović, head of the Biennial of Design at the Museum of Architecture and Design. At the opening on Thursday, 15 July 2021 from 6 pm onwards, the designers will take you around the sales exhibition, present their work and views on their business strategy and enable you to purchase unique and handmade home products.
We present a selection of modern, unique, small-series ceramic productions, which are currently gaining in collector’s value. Six designers will take part in this edition, design collectives that present an overview of the ceramic production of the local space. The medium of ceramics has again become a popular and recognised in the field of design and art in the last decade, which is also reflected in the increase in the number of artists who have chosen this material to bring their ideas to life. The selection of designers was influenced by the variety of techniques used to process the material. Through individualised and innovative production approaches in the use and processing of the material, designers develop functional and decorative ceramic products of various volumes.
We invite you to visit us and meet the designers in the Project Office of the Centre for Creativity, Partizanska c. 11, in Maribor, where their products will be available for sale on Thursday, 15 July 2021, between 6 pm and 10 pm, and on Friday, 16 July 2021, between 10 am and 6 pm.
