Zheni - Vase
Slovakia - After 2000 - Clay

Vase. Wheel-thrown in a special technique of several stages of the centering of the clay body. Made from terra nigra clay with a pretty big chamotte stone that makes hard rough texture. With a matte glaze inside in white color. Massive and beautiful. Suitable for liquids.

Clay. This is a reason why I started ceramics.
One of the most ancient materials humans worked with. Liquid, soft, and malleable. Very strong after firing.

Clay. Rough textures, unfinished edges, and asymmetrical forms give an opportunity to remind about nature in everyday life with a feeling of simplicity. There is no judgment, social pressure, time limits. Just pureness of the moment. Easiness. Importance. Basic. Reminder about how easy to be just human.

I call my vessels plant holders. They always are made to be with plant in it. During the design process, I think a lot about the plant as a symbol of nature. Significance of plants to a human. What feelings object may call. Vessels are beautiful in their delicacy, minimalist mood, raw textures, and natural colors.
