The company modranska started to write the family tradition story back in 1975, and the tradition continues the journey of making original Slovak ceramics with an aim to resurrect traditional shapes and patterns as well as using fresh designs with the respect to the traditions and beauty of old pottery from the region. Each piece of pottery is produced manually on a potter’s wheel with the specific pattern. The typical modranska fans are individuals and companies, who are on the hunt after the Slovak gifts – which are traditional but at the same time contemporary. The most demanding sovereign is after all those years the dazzling modranska blue cups and plates, named majolica, with the typical elements of flowers.
We need to admit that the beauty of the modranska pottery astounded us. Our first thought would be to keep the products as souvenirs, to put the plates on the wall, to serve exclusively as a decoration. But the products actually are made for everyday use! The modranska goal is to make every piece useful, so majolica pattern can be admired day by day. In that case, they put on risk the traditional customs and stereotypes – but succeeded with their decision to bring majolica and amazing Modra patterns back to life.
