Do you know what dangers can befall your porcelain if you stop taking care of it? The “Onion” pattern has been around so long that the plant turned into a drawing, which transformed into a sign, and the sign became a symbol. At this point, moving anywhere is always better than staying planted. Just like flowers on the plates, the wilted central plant can become a trace of something still alive.


The Hidden Factory studio is the project of Gabriel Vach and Eva Pelechová. Pelechová studied at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, in Israel, Germany and Estonia. She is a regular guest at international symposia and residencies, has taken part in over sixty exhibitions,
and her work is part of public and private collections both
at home and abroad. She has received dozens of awards across Europe and Asia. Pelechová works with porcelain, testing the visual and material limits of ceramics. She is member of the International Academy of Ceramics, Homo Faber, Director of the International Symposium on Ceramics.
