Lithophany as a trademark

  • • Snježana creates flat and clean abstract shapes
  • • She has an experimental approach to the lithophany technique
  • • She used to organise international exhibitions

Snježana Pokos-Vujec's work is always an intense creative search for new forms and new themes. In her work, she uses different techniques and production technologies and is equally successful at making large and miniature, robust as well as fragile works. After many years in the field observing the ceramics world through the eyes of an international exhibition organiser within a ceramicist association, she gradually became interested in making herself. “After learning through observing I started to express myself artistically. I chose outstanding ceramic artists - masters of design and porcelain decoration as my teachers, so I quickly overcame the most demanding techniques, including lithophany, which has become my trademark”, says Snježana.

A deep breath

This handcrafted stoneware piece reflects Snjezana Pokos-Vujec passion for perfection of geometrical bodies and the freedom of natural forms at the same time. Sometimes she compares and oppose them in her work, just to show and emphasise their beauty.

This ceramic installation, handcrafted from bone china, is inspired by thoughts on family. Gently but strong enough, not so perfect but proud, similar but not the same… “We stand together as a family”. That’s the most important thing for Snjezana Pokos-Vujec.
