The expression of the Section brooch series is the cutting of straight surfaces -sections- into organically vibrating shapes. Cutting through the shape reveals an inner calmness expressed by the flat, smooth and matt surface in contrast to the shiny, shimmering surface.
Even when I was a kid I liked the Czechoslovak flag. The flags of other countries were boringly striped. Historically, it probably makes sense, but I always liked the fact that the Czechoslovak flag was different.
This brooch is a tribute to the Czechoslovak flag.

Shape…is the fundamental characteristics of an object within space. Without it, it cannot be revealed, it cannot be seen. People defined shape with the use of geometry. They formed the basic shapes out of which all the other shapes emerged. And precisely these elementary shapes inspired me most, while I was working on this collection. Their simple visual form. Clear intelligibility. In connection with the traditional craft, their simplicity is merely apparent. Perfect accuracy can’t be achieved by handwork, but good craft can create an impression of precise work. The creator’s eye is constantly controlling all the imprecisions and tries to balance them out into an illusion of accuracy. Working on such shapes is often much more demanding than creating ornamental motifs.
In the “Shape” collection I also work with the illusion of space. Some shapes strike as objects being half way between two- and three-dimensional.
The jewellery from the “Arabic” collection was inspired by the fascinating beauty of geometric patterns from the Arabic cultures. Their diversity and endless variability is a great inspirational source, and at the same time, the decorativeness of the patterns offers a great possibility of use in jewellery designing. The structure of the jewels from the “Arabic” collection uses overlapping geometric shapes to create an illusion of space, which even changes its appearance with a different angle of the view.
A traditional handicraft practice is used throughout the whole collection and it strives for the highest quality of processing.
