Veronika Selingerova (Slovakia)
I was always working with clay. This medium I have chosen to reflect my world, my ideas, my feelings. Even though the idea was always the most important I try to understand the material more and even more and it needs time and experience.
The clay has its own life.
soft - wet - flexible - touch - drying - cracking - changing the colour - very fragile - no water - fire - the colour - hard - sharp
