The teaware maker

  • • Andrzej has exhibited in Germany, Korea and Taiwan
  • • His teapot was awarded 9th at the Taiwan International Gold Teapot Prizes
  • • For 10 years he ran a ceramic workshop at a centre for blind children

In Asian cultures, the tea ceremony is filled with mysticism and centuries-old traditions. Brewing tea is associated with harmony and peace. "In all the hustle of the world it is such a good time to sit down and do something that is so focused on the activity itself" – says Andrzej Bero who became involved with ceramics over 20 years ago. In the 90s he followed ceramic classes for two years at People’s University in Turno, and soon after joined one of the oldest Polish ceramic groups – KERAMOS. Although from the beginning he was interested in teaware, meeting people who deal with tea had a big impact on his work: "So far, I have just made teapots. But now I think about form and size, the way they are decorated or glazed, all this matters. I have devoted myself completely to it."
