Since the mid-eighties, Milan Kout has focused his attention on translucent ceramics, which have won him several gold medals around the world. The translucent nature of the ceramics, when light and air can pass through, creates an incredible effect of weightlessness lightness and fragility, enabling non-traditional use of the interior. Studio Kout completed the long-awaited development of its unique technology to manufacture clay relieves in 2001. Clay relief can briefly be described as a ceramic plaque 4-6 mm thick, the dimensions of which vary between 15-40 cm. There is always a motif on the plaque, which ranges in depth from 1-2 mm. The relief is very similar to fossils and is coloured with engobe or glaze. The maintanance is easy; the whole plaque can be washed with water. This unique decoration can either be hung on the wall or stood anywhere – a set of 3-6 pieces looks incredible. The number of existing motifs is growing continuously.
