Experts of fine arts assess Michael Powolny's work nowadays as result of activity of one the most important ceramics sculptors and designers of Austrian art nouveau. Most of Powolny's successors were strongly under his sway since Powolny had left "large steps" in Viennese art of ceramics.

The cherubs created by Powolny, many of them on behalf of wiener keramik (wk), are much sought by knowledgeable collectors of art nouveau ceramics due to fine quality of modeling as well as due to lovely and punchy appearance.
