"The European Citizen's Prize".

Congratulations to Ceramics Studio founder János Probstner.

A well deserved acknowledgement of his great work over the years and his legacy in the Ceramics Studio, which continues the work of supporting, promoting and fostering intercultural relationships through the medium of ceramics.

The European Citizen's Prize is intended to be an award for exceptional achievements in the activities or actions by citizens, groups, associations or organisations having displayed an outstanding commitment to promoting better mutual understanding and closer integration between citizens of the Member States; or to facilitating cross- border or transnational cooperation within the European Union.
