Marek Olkusz

Born 1977 in Szczecin, Poland. 

Moved to Seattle, WA at age 16 and stayed for the next 15 years. 

Today, Marek lives and works in Berlin. 

The Mollifier Collection combines art, functionality and sculpture. Familiar shapes from post-communist Poland meet the clear lines and organic tones of the Pacific Northwest. Marek follows the forms of old favourites and adapts them to the texture and conditions of the material he is working with. Discovering and emphasizing on the uniqueness of each object turn mere designs into one-of-a-kind pieces.
