Silvia comes from Slovakia, a country of incredible cultural heritage and has always had a passion and respect for crafts. She believes that heritage is a vital element of our cultural and social history. Silvia has a particular interest in folkloristic traditions working in a thoughtful way and producing work that shows an aesthetic sensibility and reflecting her interests. She is captivated by the simple beauty of agrarian vessels used mainly for gathering and storing harvest; large herdsmen buckets, wicker baskets, or small forest fruit pickers. Observation and playful approach to making results in sincere forms combined with spontaneous mark making. She uses coloured slip of selected palette which derives from colours predominantly seen on peasant ceramic vessels.
