Ondřej Batoušek is a young Czech designer of porcelain and ceramics, whose work portrays a truly fresh concept. Currently, Ondřej is a student of the Ceramics studio at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design (VŠVU) in Bratislava; he is also a graduate of the Ceramics and Porcelain Studio at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design (VŠUP) in Prague. He has also participated in workshops abroad. A significant feature of Ondřej Batoušek's work is the connection of presence with history. From his unique work let us mention, for example, the set of fruit bowls Ambrosiana, “cauliflower” Bee sheep, the Baroque-esque Santini vases inspired by the ground plan of the unique structure of chapel in Žďár nad Sázavou or ceramic vases called Bleskovka. These are a set of two vases that fit into each other, inspired by a line of lightning and demonstrate its power and dynamics. Ondřej Batoušek was nominated for the Czech Grand Design award Discovery of 2011. He has presented his work at many exhibitions and it can be also purchased at Prague's Hard-de-core Gallery, Leporelo+ and The Chemistry Gallery.
