Located in the heart of Brighton on the south coast of the UK, Silvia established her eponymous studio shortly after graduation in 2012. Reflecting her commitment to authenticity, every aspect of production takes place in-house.
Silvia’s drawings inform the models from which she makes her plaster moulds; she also mixes casting slip, makes glazes - nothing is outsourced.
Silvia's collections are a contemporary interpretation of simple historical objects with a strong focus on function and colour. While the origins of her early work can be traced to her Slovakian heritage, ongoing research comes from sources as diverse sources as Spanish pharmacy jars and Iraqi dinner plates.
All pieces in her latest range are made by hand in Silvia’s favourite terracotta clay that has been fired to mid temperature to give it a beautiful rich red colour. The iron in the clay finds its way through the grey-blue tin glaze and results in uniquely varying waves of speckles around the edges of the ware.
