On a journey of creativity

  • • Rada's work is regularly presented in exhibitions in Bulgaria
  • • Visual art and functionality mark her creations
  • • Her parents still keep all of her works from high school

Rada Dicheva is acknowledged as among the best artist-artisans of her generation. With the ability to cast a critical eye over the quality and idiosyncrasy of her work, she is able to work in multiples without losing originality or lowering her high standards. Her works range from delicate white porcelain tableware to vases and more abstract items, some decorated with the subtly traditional 'shevititsi' (seamstresses) patterns. Because she is aware how rich the capabilities and specifics of ceramic materials and processes are, Rada tries to focus her work in order to properly deepen and refine her methods.

Cone Lamp

These pink and grey lamps were created with coloured porcelain. They beautifully complement each other not only because of their colours but due to the shadows they generate.
