ZANAMIZO are functional ceramic pieces handmade in Switzerland by Slovene ceramist Kristina Pucko. 

 

The name “Za na mizo” translates to “for the table” in Slovene language.

 

Kristina aims to create objects with perceptual force that enhance the eating experience and bring playfulness to the art of table setting

 

All pieces are realised on a pottery wheel using high-fired stoneware clay. Most pieces are then hand-carved to create textures, rhythm and depth, resulting in objects with a singular tactile attraction. Using only artisanal methods, pieces are carefully produced in small series and easily adapted to customer needs.

About Kristina Pucko

I'm a philosopher that turned potter.

My educational background is in philosophy. After defending a PhD in philosophy (2018) on the topic of perception of colors at the University of Milan, I turned to the study of perception in a more concrete manner. Since 2019 I got trained as a ceramist in several ceramic studios before starting my line of work with ZANAMIZO.

I grew up in Slovenia and the studies took me abroad. I currently live and work in Fribourg, Switzerland.
