INFORMATION FOR CUSTOMERS
Dear customers, we are very pleased with your interest in this site. You will also find the opportunity to purchase utility ceramics and works of art created by Cyril Hancl on this website. Because these are not ordinary consumer goods, but objects of artistic value, both the exhibited pieces and the sale through these pages have specific details, with which you can get acquainted here.
ABOUT CYRIL HANCL'S CERAMICS
Each individual product or work of art that you can purchase on this site is an original created by Cyril Hancl. From the beginning to the end of production, each piece passed exclusively through his hands. It does not use any moulds or templates in the production of ceramics. The individual pieces are always only similar, you will never find two exactly the same, both in shape and colour. The glazes are mixed variously by the author and even the ones he uses mixed from the manufacturer can have smaller or bigger differences in results. It depends on the location in the kiln, the layer and many other factors that we cannot completely influence.
Custom production of ceramics is possible in the case of ordering sets or individual larger pieces (vase, salad bowl, etc.). However, it is always necessary to take into account that there may be deviations in shape and colour. But this guarantees that you will receive a unique original!
We use only non-hazardous materials, exclusively lead-free glazes. Our ceramic products have been successfully tested for health safety.
