My intent is to make functional or decorative pieces that bring joy into everyday life. I strongly believe that every piece made by hand, with love and good craftsmanship, brings much needed nourishment. There is a great satisfaction in being able to transform soft lumps of clay into different forms.
The objects that surround us in our day-to-day lives, by the moments that come and go, constantly inspire me. It is a great pleasure for me to catch that moment and make it live repeatedly on a piece of pottery. I find beauty in simple shapes and I try to give them deeper meaning. Catching a smile on someone’s face while they look at my pieces is truly a wonderful reward and an endless source of motivation. Nevena is a founding member of The Niche Gallery.
