About me

My story is probably similar to many others you've read. One day, tired of the pace of life, I wanted to live slower, differently. A few years ago, I was an active and successful hotelier and loved my job, its multitasking and versatility. Until the moment when, as a participant of the ceramics workshops, I felt something that could not be described in words. I remember the day when I touched the clay for the first time, I felt its structure, plasticity and I wished these classes would never end. It was just me and the cop, my imagination and the need for creative creativity. Since I was a child, I had a passion for art. I liked to paint, decorate and beautify. From every trip I brought a sculpture, an icon, and various hand-painted vessels.

Create process

1.

Creating a concept

I create functional ceramics, tableware, kitchen and decorative dishes. The process itself is slow and lengthy and full of mindfulness. All the beauty is in the ball of mud that turns into an object in my hands that will give someone a pleasure. Clay gives you absolutely unlimited creation possibilities. It requires patience and time. Even if I wanted to speed up I hear somewhere in the back of my head to slow down. I like to design and create for a specific person. Even if the recipient is a restaurant or bistro, in reality the goal is always the preferences of a specific person, not just the character or style of a given interior. The very process of getting to know the needs and preferences of the recipient is extremely exciting, because I create something for someone who is very important to me from then on. When creating I think about its needs and expectations.

Working with clay

I make my objects sticking by hand from beginning to end, allowing the clay to bear the hallmarks of a hand-made work. Sometimes it is fingerprints, other times it is a form devoid of perfection. I am equally eager to work on a potter's wheel, which allows for greater precision and repeatability of projects.
Pottery is one of the oldest crafts, it requires knowledge of rolling techniques, and although it seems that only hands are rolling clay on a wheel. In fact, it is the work of the whole body and constant mindfulness in the process of creation, which influences the final shape of the work. Each object requires drying and processing, re-drying, and bisque-firing.

Glaze and fire

Then I work with glaze and fire again, usually at the temperature of 1250 degrees, so that the dishes can be washed in a dishwasher. Although it may seem that this is the least creative process, it is also time-consuming, because the glued object must dry, smooth, burn, paint and burn it again. It happens that one object is fired three times. Firing usually takes about 10 hours, the next 12 hours is for the stove to cool down. Each opening of the furnace is always a huge excitement and an even greater unknown, because clay likes to surprise.

Chapels of Santa Maria

The passion for creating chapels was born from the passion for molding in clay and DIY. And above all, for the love of Mary. For many years, together with my husband, Marcin ┼╗ebrowski, we collected pieces of old wood from Kashubian cottages and old tenement houses, which we visited while traveling around Poland and not only ­čÖé These beautiful, old oak roofs, often abandoned for modernity, did not allow us to pass by indifferently. The statue of Santa Maria is made of clay, fired and glazed twice, and then planted on these precious pieces of wood, and so it falls into the hands of those who have such a desire. Each chapel is priced individually, mainly due to the origin of the wood, its age, the conservation process and the technique of its processing.
