Irena SaboloviĆ

Born in Koprivnica, Croatia. Graphic designer. Started ceramic journey in 2021 at Atelier Pičuljan in Varaždin.

After years of expressing myself digitally and on paper, I realized my ideas and emotions needed a new dimension. Clay. With clay I slow down, I inhale twice, I think and change my mind thrice, I press a part of myself into it and it gives back… It gives me back peace and fulfillment. That same clay is then transformed into its final, permanent form – ceramics. A whole new world worth exploring and learning. Transformation is mutual.

My mind is pretty abstract and mostly my work is a product of introspective thoughts, emotions and reactions to external experiences. I also find inspiration in nature to back up my expression in forms and textures.
