Skarby Natury – the Treasures of Nature – Oils from Zabłocie
Jolanta and Eligiusz Pecio have always had an oil press machine at home. In the past it had been used by their parents and grandparents. It was five years ago that they decided to share with other people the excellent, fresh, very healthy cold-pressed oils made of the grains from their own crops. This is how Skarby Natury (The Treasures of Nature) was born. Today they have over dozen oils in their offer (among them oils made of mustard seeds, nigella, pumpkin, silybum, rape, flax or oenothera), as well as milled flax seeds, grass pea and flours from ancient grains. Mrs. Jolanta also runs educational workshops for school and kindergarten children.
Sensual is an artistic ceramics studio which designs unique vessels for everyday use, such as platters, bowls and plates, but also sculptures. Their works were presented, among others, at the International Biennale of Ceramics in Spain and Austria. The studio was established in 2007 and it is run by Katarzyna and Arek. Katarzyna completed graphic design studies with ceramics faculty and used to work at professor Adam Myjak’s workshop, at the Institute of Fine Arts in Lublin. She admires the Japanese art, a fascination which is well reflected in the Sensual projects. Arek is a real beauty amateur and he is responsible for the technical questions, both at the studio and in the boutique. Sensual collaborates with our restaurant, designing unique, custom-made vessels for our chef. Since this year they have also been running their boutique in Kazimierz Dolny in Lubelska 11 street, where they display their vessels. Their mission is to raise the awareness that the living space can be filled with beautiful objects.
