I have always been fascinated by people’s faces. Since I was at school, I liked to draw people. I doodled faces everywhere, even on the corners of my school notebooks. I still do, I still draw people every day. Faces are so fascinating, they tell so many stories, they are so unique and interesting. People’s faces have become a very important part of my work- in photography and painting.
A couple years ago I rented a space in a small clay studio and since that time, I have special warm feelings with clay. The making process is very meditative and calming. Perfect for this time.
I am lucky to have an amazing friend who happened to have a clay studio and her own kiln. Link to her website: https://www.beehappystudio.com With her help, I was able to glaze and fire the brooches that I made earlier from my doodles and sketches.
Here are some images for preparing brooches.
I am very excited to announce that my brooches are available for purchasing now! Please follow the link to my shop: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/EvijaARTshop?ref=seller-platform-mcnav§ion_id=29338525
All the brooches are offered to #artistsupportpledge created by Matthew Burrows. I put up works for sale of no more than £200 and if I reach 1K, I pledge to buy another artists work. Please support this wonderful artist initiative!
