Sure, on the initial surface it looks like a Mary Suetopia, with fantastic magical architecture and things with disgustingly cute names.

People have known this for thousands and thousands of years, and they have taken advantage of the special characteristics of ceramics as a material: Throughout history, ceramics has played an important role in the development of different kind of societies all around the world, influencing the way people have built their houses, lived their lives and eaten their food.
The European project Ceramics and its Dimensions seeks to be a part of the rediscovering of the role of ceramics and the bringing forth of the knowledge of the heritage and the different traditions of the use of ceramics.
This ambitious project has connected museums, architects, designers, industry and stakeholders from different European countries to explore ceramics according to its cultural, historical, technical and artistic aspects.
The project is supported by the EU Programme Creative Europe, and it brings together twenty-five partner institutions from eleven European countries: Within the project, there are ten separate modules that focus on diverse aspects of ceramics.
Each of the modules uses their own way to explore, discuss, show and share their specific topics. For example, the module European Cultural Lifestyle in Ceramics — from Baroque until today constitutes a touring exhibition that presents some carefully selected items which mirror the history of ceramics in the European lifestyle from the Baroque period to the present.
Then the module Architectural Ceramics in Europe uses the form of a database to present some extraordinary buildings in European history. It highlights the fact that ceramics is not an insignificant building material but in fact one which has in many cases improved the quality of architecture significantly.
The module Prop ceramics — ceramics in movies and advertisements takes a retrospective view of the socio-cultural background of the use of ceramics in films.
On the other hand the module Ceramics — what it means to me brings us to the question of how to use ceramics for improving the living conditions of people and how to make sure that ceramic products are sustainable.
It also tackles the fundamental question of how we can create ceramic pieces that are produced in large quantities yet at the same time feel personal. To support the challenges for the upcoming generation, the Future Lights module and competition is targeted at young designers who have just started their careers.
The module provides a chance for the selected participants to promote their career as designers and ceramicists. Right now, you are handling the publication that will discuss and show in detail how the module is in fact shaping the very future!
Southern Regional College Opening: The exhibition creates another step in providing artistic opportunities for the members in a professional setting. The work, which draws great interest from the local area, will continue to develop ties between MCAC and local practicing artists.

Note that there is no reason to assume that it isn't possible to create a better society. Thus, some of these utopias might actually work. However, the distinctive characteristic of a Mary Suetopia is that it goes beyond just being a perfect society - it's a perfect society filled with perfect people, who show enthusiastic support for the author's society's ideology.
