modranska is a company that makes useful ceramics – Modra majolica and earthenware. Designers and artisans from around Slovakia breathe new life into traditional patterns and shapes in their original mugs, plates, Christmas decorations, and other items.
The company’s history goes back to 1975, when Marián Liška started work as an apprentice at the Modra school of ceramics. He worked there as master craftsman until 1990, when he set up his own studio. That became the foundation for modranska, when the master potter’s son mastered new techniques, brought new ideas, and opened up a whole new dimension to the craft.
The company works with artisans and designers who have won national awards for design and pottery awards in the former Czechoslovakia and around the world.
