Yipee - I'm off to Bratislava tomorrow. Not work, just a week away with David doing (hopefully) very little other than potter around and admire. A little downtime is much needed at the moment.
To that end, I decided today to research textile artists and designers from Slovakia (still haven't quite got the hang of this switching off lark, have I?!!).
A particular favorite is Iveta Mihalikova, who is an experienced designer and textile artist herself and also a teacher of textile design at School of Applied Art in Bratislava.
I wanted to share some of her work with you - it is inspirational and very organic. She also paints and works in wire as well as her textile pieces.
