high-fired clay

he shape of the spiral has fascinated me in nature since I was a child, without knowing anything about the symbolic meaning people have always attached to it. When I think about it, I often intuitively think of something to draw or model, and then only realize the inner connections. Usually when someone asks me about the source of my inspiration.

The spiraling shells are not only beautiful, but mysterious and inspiring. Their natural beauty and grandeur evoke a sense of humility and wonder at the infinite creative power of nature. That is why it has also become a symbol of the ever-recurring events in nature, on our planet and in the universe. In the same way, the spiral is seen as a symbol of spiritual growth and fulfilment in life, symbolizing the mysterious journey into one's own inner self. It can also be an energy radiator or a protective talisman. In magical practice, the spiral, especially the right-hand spiral, supports the effort to make our wishes become reality. And I like this idea. I put my personal wish in it too.

In my rendition, it couldn't be other than cheerfully colorful and irregularly regular.

Alexandra Koláčková is a graduate of fine arts at the Faculty of Pedagogics in Olomouc. A characteristic feature of her work are especially colourful, large-format ceramic and concrete sculptures, intended for public spaces. However, in many projects the author expanded the range of visual effects to deal with the space itself, mingling an artistic approach with the work of a landscape designer. Her artistic concept is typical of expressive range of colours, simple and rounded morphology and an abiding sense of playful elements.
