A colourful universe

  • • Veronika originally wanted to be a painter
  • • She uses a special marbling effect
  • • Her works are inspired by natural forms

The vases of Veronika Švábeníková combine something essentially terrestrial and impressively extraterrestrial. The patterns resemble nebulas in the far universe but feel familiar at the same time. At least for those who know the lively pond flora or colourful structures of rocks and minerals. Veronika's works seem to be related to the beginnings of Earth. It's probably due to her work with fundamental elements. The clay creates the body, the fire gives it birth and the water gives it a voice. "My technique is based on the mechanical transfer of a pattern from the water surface to an object. And I aim to avoid industrial colourings and glazes, so I make them myself." Veronika's approach results in timeless objects with distinctive charisma.
