Magic Ananda: About Us

About Us

Magic Ananda has been conceived as an independent artistic project where a visionary art form is expressed through a virtual art gallery based on ceramics and where the platform is used to develop and build extensive experiences of artistic design.
The very first steps in the history of this project were taken in 2001, starting with a long process of learning and experimentation of technical methods. After a few years of practice and design, this process led the artist to the discovery of her own artistic style. It founded thus the fundament of this project. Then after some time dedicated to exploration and creativity, came the time to expand the project in order to open to the world these collections of innovative artwork which shine with inherent beauty and functionality.
Our ceramics are handmade. They preserve all the knowledge concentrated in two generations of women who practiced this art. Magic Ananda is a form to eternize an old-time tradition which has co-habited with us as long as the history of this planet unveils. The essence of ceramics constitutes an elementary dynamics linking earth, water, air and fire. Its place among mankind determines this strong link which bounds us to our roots. That’s why we long to preserve this art and the symbolisms shown through its forms.
Our ceramics are modern pieces of art, decorative and useful at the same time. They have been designed to illuminate the surrounding space with their unique style, in several respects of harmony and symmetry. We produce artworks intended to activate vital energies and make them vibrate in different frequencies with brightness and glow of colourful contrasting decorations. The motives are symbolic compositions developed within essential proportions of sacred geometry. They guard inside a conceptual background which expresses multifaceted nuances of Universal enigmas. The Magic Ananda ceramics are alive through a transformation process and they become symbols which illuminate the life with the brightness and beauty of the creation.

    Inspiration

    Magic Ananda forms and designs use the universe as a source of inspiration and energy of life which reveals itself in nature, as well as in visions and wisdom inherited from ancient times. Our creative artworks constitute a transfiguration of these age-old symbols in an expression of contemporary art which fuse together a vast spectrum of inspiration sources melted within an essence of universal enigmas. The human understanding of the origin of the universe and the existence of life will be infinite, but at the same time it will be illusory. And it’s where the visionary art imposes its trace in a shared subconscious and exposes puzzling nuances.
