We are Blagovesta and Alexander Makedonsky - ceramic artists who live and work in Sofia, Bulgaria. For us work is a journey from which you return not with a collection of photographs of museums and cathedrals but with memories of meetings, scents, colors and randomly heard stories that we tell in color.

Around year 2000 we started our joint work in the field of ceramics. In our ceramic arts we also include elements of other materials - wood, metal, enamel. During the years our ceramics have been added to collections from all over the world - USA, Europe, Japan, Australia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Israel, Tasmania, New Zealand, Canada and more countries.
Our pieces are unique and individually made in our home based studio. We work with great attention to a detail using "chamotte" clay, oxides, glases, metal and wood. Each piece is bisque-fired at 1000C degrees, painted with oxides, ceramic colours and glazes and fired for a second time at about 1050C degrees.
