ABOUT INSPIRATION

During studying I had an inspiration with the Universe. I graduated from the theme "The elements of Gothic architecture in textile and fashion". Always with text I elaborate all my inspiration.
The Universe and Gothic have mystical elements in themselves. After the scholastic period, in the Gothic period science is trying to explain many of the themes in the spirit of their time,  art have big progress that has manifested also in architecture. It is interesting to study how science and religion affect the visual identity of time. Gothic is characterized by a "horror vacui" - a fear of empty space that can be explained as a richness of spirit . From this become all my inspiration - the richness of spirit! The richness of spirit leads me through life, it is the essence of life. I've done a lot of topics and cycles, commenting with my art works of current social theme, without words, just colors and composition and tactility. That is a challenge. Ecology is always present in everything I do. Peoples has devastated this wonderful Planet on a lot levels, and at this time that experiencing have culmination more intensive then ever.

Ecology and celebration of life are my inspiration. Life is energy in constant motion. I'm trying to visualize it. From where energy coming? What is beginning? What is shape of energy? That is a mystery! We are part of the Universe of that infinite space in which time and events have a different meaning..ah ... now it's hard for me to continue writing on English. I have to simplify the expression for translation and all lose meaning, but I hope that I have been able to explain what created my visual expression and artistic opus. I did not mention one quite personal experience. One event from the past has shaped my artistic expression. My inspirations are complex, they have an interaction. There is lot of idea what I want to create. I feel lot of energy in myself, lot of inspirations.

When I'm working with a torch then I most feel the energy of creation. Working in metal is what drives me creatively all the stronger and stronger. I pause only when I get tired, just to refresh and continue. Something like a perpetuum mobile ;) ... but of course, now I have a lot of orders and dead lines, it is necessary to take time to enjoy life after work :)

This pendants represent my inspiration with Universe...sometimes I fantasize about traveling to which it is impossible to go ... about the land to which it is impossible to put foots and run ... where the air is impossible to breathe .... it is enough to look up and enjoy the view of the vastness of the night sky and the countless stars .... this is sculptural jewelry inspired by cosmic dust, clouds, stars and endless space ! *-*

- I painted my hand with a white wall paint to make photo of the ring. Obviously the color is good quality because it was necessary to scrub a long time to make my hand clean again ;)) 

- Bojala sam ruku bijelom zidnom bojom za fotkanje prstena . Očito je boja dobre kvalitete jer sam ju morala dugo ribati sa ruke ;))

UNIVERSE as inspiration


 This is custom order PENDANT (sterling silver, copper, brass, patina) for one interesting man. He is pilot, my inspiration is Universe. Clouds, altitudes and the Universe fascinate us. This pendant will definitely have a good owner. He asked me to make a pendant in the dimensions that he like and suggested the combination of details from my two pendants that was in my shop. This was an interesting collaboration, thank you Mr. W for nice cooperation and communication :) 


  Ovo je PRIVJESAK (srebro, bakar, mesing, patina) po narudžbi za jednog zanimljivog kupca. On je pilot, moja inspiracija je Svemir. Oblaci, visine i svemir fasciniraju nas. Ovaj privjesak zasigurno će imati dobrog vlasnika. Zamolio me da napravim privjesak u dimenzijama koje mu odgovaraju i predložio kombinaciju detalja sa dva privjeska koji su bili u mojoj trgovini. Ovo je bila zanimljiva suradnja, hvala g. W. za zanimljivu suradnju i razgovor :)

Pendant in progress, jewelry making is not clean work. There is lot of dirty and dangerous work to do until the end. This is reticulation technique for nice relief structure on the surface what remind me on Universe energy and clouds. 
Fire reminds me on the Big Bang and the power of creation. There is tremendous energy that you need to know to control to create beauty

Privjesak u stvaranju, izrada nakita nije čist posao. Postoji mnogo prljavih i opasnih radova do kraja. Ovo je tehnika retikulacije za lijepu reljefnu strukturu na površini koja me podsjeća na energiju Svemira i oblake. 
Vatra me podsjeća na Veliki Prasak i snagu stvaranja. Ogromna je to energija koju treba znati kontrolirati za stvaranje ljepote




finished pendant - all elements describe planets, stars and Universe energy

završen privjesak: Svi elementi dočaravaju planete, zvijezde i svemirsku energiju
