Magušar's House and Manufaktura

Magušar's House and the Manfaktura pottery workshop and shop, located in Radovljica's old town, offer an insight into Slovenia's pottery tradition as well as contemporary methods of producing pottery.

Rural Gorenjska pottery

Magušar's House is the home of the acclaimed ceramist Urban Magušar and the centre of his creativity. On the opposite side of Linhart Square, on the ground floor of one of the town houses, is Manufaktura. It features a small pottery workshop, where unique, limited edition pieces pf pottery are made, and a small shop that stocks ceramic products as well as materials and tools for use by ceramists.

 

Magušar's House

Magušar's House itself is interesting. Over the centuries it was formed out of three houses which are joined by a historic arcaded courtyard dating from the 16th century. The house's owner and resident, the Slovenian ceramist Urban Magušar, has added his own special touches to the building. In the workshop in the attic, he creates bowls and other decorative products using traditional patterns while passing on his knowledge to his offspring as well as to other lovers of clay and ceramics.

 

The ground floor of the house features an exhibition of rural Gorenjska pottery. Among the exhibits are bowls from the two oldest pottery centres in Gorenjska - the village of Ljubno, which is just a few kilometres from Radovljica, and Komenda.

 

Magušar's House is open upon prior arrangement.

 

MANUFAKTURA

The small pottery workshop and shop is located on the ground floor of the house at Linhart Square 12. It offers an insight into the work of producing limited edition ceramics. The mini ceramic replicas of the houses in Radovljica's old town, as well as other small pottery items, are produced here.

 

The other part of the building features a shop selling pottery products and material and equipment for use by ceramists. Products made by Urban Magušar and the team in his workshop, as well as clay, colours, tools and other equipment for ceramists, are on sale.

 

OPENING HOURS:

Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 10am – 1pm and 2pm – 4pm
Wednesdays 10am – 1pm and 2pm – 7pm
