Nature's Greenhouse

What if you suddenly woke up in the morning alone in the middle of the forest? What's more, how would you feel when you realized that you will never go back, that nature is your home from now on? In that case, panic would likely set in. We would resort to all means to return to society, you could not allow yourself to think that you would remain alone. Being alone but with nature is such a main field of consideration. Time plays an important role here - we are talking about a person who, regardless of how he appeared in it, has already managed to get used to it. He has gone through the challenges of changing seasons and from now on he lives the cycle of nature together with her, in unity. He is not wild, but at the same time he discovers that his senses are sharpened: he sees more clearly, hears more sensitively, smells more, feels more strongly and thinks more clearly. This friendship with the elements of nature, its flora and fauna, gives him more than the city and people - he feels purified and goes deeper into himself every day. Loneliness gives him completeness.

Ceramic paintings and sculptures sensitively reveal the theme of the unity of man and nature, but at the same time expressively. The variety of colors and contrasts involve the viewer: he feels himself in the role of the character and together with him experiences the sharpening of his senses. The line, ornaments and the geometric figures that make up the paintings, enchant like a kaleidoscope and force you to stay, to linger, to feel the therapy of nature. In the end, through the form, the more observant viewers will notice how it is unconsciously compared to nature: the characters of the sculptural compositions, birds and people, acquire the same characteristics and features of appearance. To feel a bit like a bird, a bit like a tree for the main character is to turn to the Creator. From this comes gratitude and a sense of responsibility. To be at one with nature is not only to draw from it, but also to nurture it. Enamels, chandeliers and overglaze paints as well as black ceramics, raku elements are used. The works are made of different firings and types of clay (terracotta 900 °C, faience, 1160 °C and bone porcelain 1220 °C).
