Nicolas Villeroy, a head of the Villeroy&Boch‘s tableware direction, arrived in Georgia particularly for this occasion. He saw the result of the initiative in Tbilisi for the first time and was very impressed.

According to Nicolas, Rusudan Petviashvili’s delicate colors and distinctive painting technique makes their tableware unique.

Author of the artworks herself remarked that Villeroy&Boch is her favorite brand, but she could never ever think of such collaboration.

"I have always been interested in painting on tableware and porcelain. When I was offered collaboration, first I thought about creating historical artworks, but finally I chose love theme. I created three works depicting the love story of a boy and a girl” – Rusudan Petviashvili noted.

The project turned out to be a big success, so who knows, perhaps the brand will launch serial production of tableware adorned by Rusudan Petviashvili’s artworks.

Petviashvili is a Georgian artist based in Tbilisi, yet few months a year she works in Berlin, Geneva and Paris where she has a studio. She creates paintings using unique technique: the entire piece is performed without detaching from the sheet, in one-touch.
