Hi, I am Danko and I love my job.
I was born in Pleven, Bulgaria, and pottery became a beautiful and romantic part of my life. As a boy I spent my time with its magic – my grandmother worked in a ceramics workshop and I watched the clay turn into plates, cups and other items. I watched it come alive in the hands of the skilled craftsmen, saw how the glazes changed inside the kiln, how the hot shapes glowed through the small opening in its door. I admired the way the pots cooled down and gradually showed their true colors. I said to myself, “I want to do it!”
It was love at first sight and it stayed for life.
