Ilona Sulikova makes large, full-bodied vessels and decorates them with intricate geometric patterns that repeat, expand and contract as they progress. The intention is to create sequences of rythm and movement. In order to achieve fusion between the pattern and the spherical form all pieces are raku fired.
Ilona is originally from Czechoslovakia, has travelled extensively, and now lives in York. Her current work is influenced by hand-building techniques she learned in Africa coupled with painting elaborate geometric patterns with dry copper glaze.
Ilona says. I enjoy the quiet process of hand-building, being in control of the pot as it gradually swells, and finally finishing it off. My geometric designs are intended to create dynamic sequences of rhythm and movement. In order to achieve fusion between the pattern and the spherical form, all my pieces are raku fired. This also means that I have to surrender some control over the final result which always retains an element of unpredictability.
