Rony Plesl and Maxim Velčovský create their first joint work – artefact for the E15 daily

Rony Plesl and Maxim Velčovský, currently the two greatest stars of local design, met for the first time to work together on creating a single joint work. Their students at the porcelain studio at UMPRUM (Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design), led by Velčovský, and the glass studio led by Plesl created an artefact for the E15 daily and J & T Bank.

The work combining glass and porcelain will also be a gift for guests at the exclusive launch of the E15 Premium magazine entitled Business Elite, which is being held at the opening of the global showjumping r Global Champions Prague Play Off races on 13 December.

Both studios announced the contest to students. The winning design takes the form of a glass jar with frosted glass decoration, designed by Rony Plesl’s student Anna Jožová. The jar is blown in Rückl glassworks. It is closed with a porcelain lid including a horse designed by student David Ramdan. The horses on this series of jars are individually decorated by Velčovský’s students in the porcelain studio.

“These kinds of projects are very important for us, one reason being that students know their originality can go to a client, and needn’t end up merely at an exhibition of semester work,” says Rony Plesl of the joint project of UMPRIM, E15 and J & T Banka. Maxim Velčovský adds that this is the first order combining glass and porcelain the studios have done.

The work has now been rewarded by being included in the collections of the Moravian Gallery. “Design geneticists have long wondered whether glass and porcelain can be combined, and whether a hybrid Maxim Velšovský and Rony Plesl can be created. J & T Bank and E15 managed to hold a contest amongst students in which the studios of both designers joined together to come up with a prestigious award design. The result is the E15 Premium Trophy, which bears the marks of both designers, and I believe that the co-operation, which is an opportunity for Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design students, will continue in future years,” says Jan Press, director of the Moravian Gallery in Brno.

Luxury original design, a pure combination of lead crystal and porcelain: this is a general summary of the form of the artefact. “The jar captures the symbiotic relationship between the horse and rider in show jumping and is designed to be a tangible recollection of the experience of the equestrian competition. The aesthetic shape is complemented by the statuette of the jumping horse, which is a modest symbol of precision – the key characteristics in this complex discipline. I was impressed that the project would not just be about the co-operation of rider and horse, but also the co-operation of two studios – the glass studio and ceramics studio,” says Anna Jožová of her design.
