Eva Farkasova (Slovakia/Ireland)

Artist Statement by Eva Farkasova (*1980) from Limerick, Ireland:

»Nature and the shapes found within it are my primary inspiration. Through my work
I aim to remind the viewer of the feelings experienced when out in nature: sense of fresh air, peace and freedom. These feelings are calming, comforting and relaxing.

We live in a busy hihgly technological world where nature is often forgotten. Through my ceramic forms I intend to evoke and restore the natural environment. I aim to recreate objects that have visual harmony and tactile seduction, qualities that impact positively on our psychological and emotional well-being.

My ceramic pieces are hand built in black smooth, terracotta na stoneware clay with hand-sanded finnish fired at 1040C. The pieces are non-functional.«
