Maxim Velcovsky: Porcelain Dreams

After seeing everyone rave about Maxim Velcovsky's redesign of St. Bartholomew's Church, I wanted to find out more about the Czech designer who created all the commotion.

It turns out that Maxim has a knack for turning tradition on it's side. In addition to church makeovers, the young star also creates humorous tableware that will leave grandma shaking her head. My favorites are the one-of-a-kind porcelain plates he recently made for the London store Mint. While they may not be the very practical and certainly not too easy to clean, they are definitely a fun take on a traditional craft...and that, surely even grandma can appreciate.
