Experts of Fine Arts assess Michael Powolny's work nowadays as result of activity of one the most important ceramics sculptors / 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 modelling as well as due to lovely and punchy appearance.
