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.
This work was shown at Atelier Beside the Sea as part of the Pots, Prints and Jewellery exhibition.
