Recently back in his native Warsaw, ceramic designer Bartek Mejor is known for his formal explorations and cutting-edge methods. Under the tutelage of London-based craftsmen Daniel Reynolds, over the course of his studies at the Royal College of Art with ceramist Martin Smith – and during an extensive residency at Porto-based porcelain factory Vista Alegre, Mejor mastered the craft but didn’t stop there. “I became very interested in the organic process ofmelting wax, generating shape away for the computer and using different tools,” he explains, “finding textures from nature and bringing them into 3D form.” Demonstrating these characteristics but moving away from geometric structures developed in the past, Cyclone is his latest creation – designed for Italian manufacturer Fabbian. “The idea is to stimulate or almost freeze the movement of liquid porcelain – the state in which we work with it,” he describes. Continuously exploring new forms and applications, Mejor would like to establish his own ‘Made in Poland’ brand – tapping into his country’s industrial force. “I could never let go of ceramics, having mastered the tactility and stratification I can attain,” he reveals.

Using various textile techniques like knitting, embroidery and tufting, Paris-based textile artist Manon Daviet transposes her drawings into tapestries, creating what she calls “volume paintings”. Here, she talks TLmag through her multidisciplinary practice, finding inspiration in comic books and her embracing of mysticism in nature.
