The allure of repetition

  • • Mădălina launched her studio, De Ceramică, in 2013
  • • She studied for a year at the Sorbonne University, Paris
  • • She loves making minimalist objects with line patterns

Mădălina Teler discovered the beauty of ceramics at a young age. She was ten years old when she first took art classes, and what at that time simply seemed like a fun activity later turned into a long-term commitment. She studied ceramics at high school and university, before enriching her artistic knowledge at the Sorbonne in Paris, where she spent a year. After returning to Romania, she took a master's in interior design and learned about the way people integrate ceramics into their living spaces. Mădălina loves decorative architectural elements and has a real passion for lines and the repetition process of drawing one line after another. The act of applying this pattern process to minimalist objects plays a therapeutic role for Mădălina.

Duo cups

This pair of porcelain cups forms part of a collection that explores the combination of two ceramic materials, porcelain and stoneware. The pure white porcelain sits alongside the rough, yet warm coloured stoneware, making these cups quite an experience to touch and view.
