Svetlozar Parmakov is a virtuoso graphic artist of porcelain with an extraordinarily idiosyncratic stlye. In his works, ornamentation gets suggested by the form, although elements of Christian heraldry are made apparent. He achieves a powerful and original decorative style developed by a specially designed technique of artistic engraving, whereby drawings are engraved directly onto raw porcelain container and no sketch or design is used.

Then light-colour shades are rubbed in over the entire surface of the container which, after being fired at high temperature (1200°C), gets crystallized. The next steps include depositing of colloidal solutions of gold, silver and platinum and of singular colour accents. After that the container is re-fired at (850°C) and the effect of stained glass is obtained. By using this technique, he achieves a certain degree of aging, which is reminiscent of the "new antiques" trend
