The intimate world of porcelain

  • • Boya’s first collection was a tribute to her grandmother and her doilies
  • • Her process is led by an intuitive approach to the material
  • • She enjoys sharing stories through her work

A long wooden table has been a part of Bojana Brkić’s family gatherings since she was a small girl. The feeling she had as she watched her grandmother prepare the meals and arrange the flowers seems to be an inspiration that is woven into all that she does. This warmth and elegance fills her new workshop and showroom space where a similar setting acts as a centrepiece and a display for her porcelain tableware collection. Bojana is passionate about nurturing each and every piece, every aspect of a tiny cup is as important and carefully considered as the larger showpieces. She passionately and selflessly shares the knowledge she has gathered over the years working in her favourite material and hopes to inspire younger ceramists to find and express their voice in it.
