Hiding. Process of keeping senses inside. Pretending. An idea for designing such objects came to me when I found natural clay in the forest. I started from forms that mostly remain natural ground. But then I went to wheelthrown and handbuilt objects. The object has two parts. I call it dome construction. One part is a cup with a simple form. For water. It is hidden in a Dome part which is main for the object where the plant/flower is placed. On the top of the Dome part is ground stylized texture. Vase. A wheel-thrown ceramic two-piece vessel. Dome and a cup made from light brown colored clay with chamotte inside (size 0-1,5mm). The white glossy glaze goes inside of the dome body and insede of the cup. The pair is a unique sculptural and constructive vessel for fresh flowers.

Zheni is ceramic design studio. My name is Evgeniia Kazarezova, I’m a ceramic designer. Started my professional career as an architect and later as an interior designer, I continue to work with space now by placing my objects in it. Mostly I work with clay as with one of the ancient and natural material human worked with. Perception of the way material got through the thousands of years in different cultures all around the globe gives me a dose of verve. Using traditional craftsmanship methods I go for contemporary design objects that reflect my vision and feeling of actualities of the modern world. I'm a child of post-Soviet Russia. So I appreciate soviet postmodernist and brutalist architecture. I observe relationships between human and nature on the city site, making connections between different natural phenomenas. It gives me the opportunity to achieve unobvious results during the design process. I associate myself with an aesthetic of pure material textured impressive forms, I make my objects massive, tactile, and sensory. My works may be characterized by the purity of form, naturalness, and minimalism in colors. The design method can be described as a practice-led exploration of harmony between form, texture and natural colour of the material to create sculptural and functional objects hand-made and fired in my Studio in Bratislava.
