Manufaktura opens its door

08.01.2019 13:02

Manufaktura, which on Saturday 5th January first opened its doors to visitors, offers an insight into the work of producing limited edition pottery, and also features a shop with ceramic products and material and equipment for ceramists.

Manufaktura, a new highly regarded pottery workshop and ceramics shop, is located on the ground floor of the house at Linhart Square 12. The house, which since 1965 had lain empty and unused, has been brought back to life with interesting content, adding wonderful diversity to the culture of Radovljica's old town centre.

 

The owner and manager of Manufaktura is the acclaimed potter Urban Magušar, whose own pottery workshop is located in Magušar's House on the opposite side of the square. Although for now the majority of pottery will continue to be produced in the attic of Magušar's House, visitors will also be able to watch pottery items being made in Manufaktura where, from now on, the mini replicas of the houses in Radovljica's old town centre will be made, and in the future other pottery items too.

 

In the shop products made in Magušar's House are on sale. These are based on traditional Slovenian, as well as European, ceramics, which have been upgraded both in terms of aesthetics and functionality. The other part of the shop stocks products for ceramists. Various clays, colours, tools and other pottery equipment are available.

 

The opening of Manufaktura marks another small step in the mosaic of elements contributing to the revival of the old town centre. It is even more interesting since the tradition of Slovenian pottery also comes from Radovljica's surroundings. Magušar's House, with its diverse range of products and content, is increasingly open to visitors, and with the opening of the shop in a new location, Magušar's House will now have more space available for exhibitions.

 

Manufaktura is open from Mondays to Fridays from 10am-1pm and from 2pm-4pm, on Wednesdays until 7pm, as well as on the first Saturday in the month from 10am-1pm.
