Monika Zadori – ceramist

Sensitive and intuitive by nature, she indeed often realises what is vital, which helps her expand her creative activity. Her works tend to represent classical values, close to the styles of Art Nouveau and Art Deco. She frequently involves decorative elements of old houses in her works, or else she gets the inspiration from nature. She is an affective artist who in her objects strives to arrive at a harmony of colours and forms. She likes experimenting by coupling diverse materials, and her objects are often augmented by copper or wrought-iron. Raku, a favourite firing technique of hers, is also based on this, since the glazes treated with metal oxides lend a special metallic hue to the objects. She is convinced that art has a double function: in addition to the raising of consciousness it must represent beauty, and it should not deter but delight the eyes.
