Traditionally speaking, in Romanian culture, ceramic artists have seldom tried to cooperate with sculptors, and this happened mostly in the 70s and 80s, during the creative workshops at Medgidia. Moreover, the relationship between them was rather problematic: to be too sculptural, too objectual and less decorative has always been an accuse the sculptors brought to ceramists; the same, sculpture's decorativism was motivated by the so-called, until recently, arts of the fire. Nowadays, when both media cooperate with the new ones, starting with photography, sound and film and ending with conceptual performance, t o resume the former collective-work relationship is the more provocative, the more it borrows something from the morphosyntax of restoration or reenactment."
