Coming from Slovakia, a country of incredible cultural heritage, Silvia believes that tradition is a vital element of our cultural and social history.
Silvia finds fascination within old relics that transport to a different time and place. Her collection is inspired by an ethnographical study of historic peasant artefacts. She is captivated by simple beauty of agrarian vessels used mainly for gathering and storing harvest. The decoration is inspired by patterns left behind in the landscape, harvested fields and wooden houses beautifully decorated by graphic motifs. The selected palette derives from colours predominantly seen on peasant ceramic vessels.
Silvia's range varies from large vessels that are made by press molding, to smaller thrown pieces. A significant part of Silvia's work is the leather and wooden handle.
