During his apprentice in the studio of Seung Ho Yang in Montigny, Tomasz’s fascination with making and perfecting the teabowl began.
He is influenced by Korean culture and perspectives. His sculptural objects originated from making hundreds of bowls, which were later cut and reformed into the build of the object.
At the opening of the symposium exhibition in Seoul he came to understand that a teabowl is ‘a universe in itself’ and it is this quality that guides and defines the work.
For Tomasz, making tea bowls is a kind of meditation: working with organic matter is to hand over control and let the material guide you to the right shape.
He is well experienced in wood firing and using different types of kilns. A recent project was to build a Japanese Anagama kiln in Poland.
