Zmena je jediná istota.
Premena, rast, zmena fyzikálnej formy, všetko v prírode podstupuje tento proces. Materiál s ktorým pracujeme, vnímame, pozorujeme a počúvame. Nepremieňame ho, ale pomáhame mu v jeho vlastnej premene.
Spoločná inštalácia dizajnérok je o hľadaní presahov keramiky a textilu. Poukazuje na proces, vzájomný dialóg materiálov a ich postupnú transformáciu.
ZHENI is a ceramic design studio. I’m a ceramic designer. Started my professional career as an architect and later as an interior designer, I continue to work with space now by placing my objects in it. Mostly I work with clay as with one of the ancient and natural material human worked with. Perception of the way material got through the thousands of years in different cultures all around the globe gives me a dose of verve.ňň
