Ania Rogala (Poland)
Ania Rogala is an artist with a crazy fascination for almost every subject and technique. While she develops amazing skills for landscape paintings with acrylic, watercolor and oil, she is also very talented with the brush, the ink splattering for abstract renderings. But the most important themes of Ania’s works are people - their bodies, faces and spirits.
The Tucano Cuckoo Wall Clock is a reinterpretation of Gumdesign’s Cucù Improbabile clock. While the original was a concept design that was plated in silver and lacked any hour or minute hands, the Tucano is a functioning clock.

“And, also, try to learn things and then expand upon them… Those innovations are the ones that can help you to grow your business. Of course, competition is there but don’t worry about it, just perfect your business”, she said.
