Hana Novotna




The field of work with the medium of clay and porcelain is unique for its diversity. To achieve its complexity it requires the background and capabilities of all classical techniques of fine arts, e.g. drawing, painting, or sculpture; and as such it requires both two- and three-dimensional visualizing and feeling. At the same time, it is necessary to become familiar with the craft and technologies related. This flow of thought between fine and applied art, however, is very beneficial to creative work. Both lines – fine and applied arts – are present in my work simultaneously. Another part of my occupation, by no means less important, is the theoretical study of historical and philosophical aspects which together with permanent analysis of contemporary tendencies and interpretations provide a report on the current situation of the discipline of ceramics and porcelain in visual arts in general.
