Slovenian Ethnographic Museum

My studio is located in the Slovenian Ethnografic Museum in the center of Ljubljana, Slovenia. I have taught sculpture in clay and ceramic techniques there for years now. I work with all kinds
of people from children to adults, students of art, hobby artists, families, schools and groups with
special needs.

 

I have decided to share the studio with some talented young people who are interested in the ceramic medium. We share the space and our different experiences while playing with clay. I have
decided that playing during the process of creating is the phenomenon I want to explore the most.
Igravglini/PlayinClay became my (and ours) common and main concept: our way of teaching,
creating and thinking. It also became the name we want everyone to think of when getting
involved in the activities we explore in our studio in general.

 

The Ethnographic Museum supports my orientation toward ceramics so we are able to launch some
projects together as well. One example are the creative weeks for school children (Počitniški 3M)
which take place in three neighbouring museums and my studio every summer.
I also organize events during the year from lectures to special classes led by traditional potters. The
best example is my long term collaboration with Mr. Štefan Zelko, one of the best and the last
traditional potters still working in Slovenia today.
Another expert in her field that shares her knowlidge and art with us is Ms. Slavica Cvetek, one of
the last painters using underglazes in a tradition called Kamniška majolika.
