CYBISPorcelains that Fire the Imagination®

Original studio on Church Street

The Studio today


Studio is an important word when referring to porcelain art. It is one art form which truly requires the talents of several artists working together to create a porcelain sculpture in much the same fashion as many musicians combine their efforts in a symphony orchestra.

Following American citizenship for him and his wife, Cybis opened a studio in the old Steinway Mansion on Long Island with one of his protégées, a young ceramic student whose linguistic talents he had engaged at the time of the World's Fair project. in the years to come, Marylin Kozuch Chorlton's talent and integrity would be responsible for maintaining the disciplines and the techniques Cybis brought with him from his country's old Saxony craftsmen.

Boleslaw Cybis located his first Trenton Studio in an old carriage house on Church Street where his kilns were fired in an almost medieval atmosphere of sculptured cornices and archways crowded with mystic heads of maidens and the lidded faces of "Lost Souls" - all of them the artist's handiwork.

Today the Cybis studio occupies a rambling facaded building at Norman and Oakland, enclosing a courtyard of blossoming trees and shrubs. Here, one may tour the gallery and museum to view an exquisite extravaganza of porcelains from the early Neo-Meissen rococo and papka styles, to the delicate style that Cybis is world renowned for today.
