Slovene Ethnographic Museum

I am proud to enjoy the trust and support of the Slovenian National Ethnographic Museum within which my studio is located and with whom we have ongoing collaborations.

One of these is the project Vacation 3M during which we provide creative workshops for children in July and August. The project is hosted by three museums and a cinema:

National Museum of Slovenia

In 2020 we were invited by the National Museum of Slovenia to organize a special pottery workshop within the international project CerDee. We selected a group of promising Slovenian ceramic artists which we then trained in traditional pottery throwing and firing their pottery with a special smoking technique.

Traditional Pottery with Štefan Zelko

We often invite Štefan Zelko to teach prospective students traditional pottery techniques. This is a rare opportunity to learn about a tradition which in my opinion does not enjoy the status it deserves in our culture. We are therefore thankful to Štefan for coming to the studio and sharing his unique knowledge and skills with us.

Traditional Ceramics Decoration with Slavica Cvetek

Slavica Cvetek is one of the last painters skilled in underglaze decoration that thrived in the town of Kamnik till the last factory named Eti Svit was unfortanately closed. We invite Slavica to teach her beautiful technique and collaborate with her in some creative projects.

Association of Immigrants

Every year the Association of Immigrants in Slovenia invites me to gather a group of Slovene people that live abroad and teach them ceramic skills for a few days.
