“The character of my pieces is certainly influenced by the fact that I also graduated from The Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk. I like playing with colour and form, as well as using contrast. But the most fun is looking for balance in a composition. My philosophy is: to share what I love.”

How do you make it?
Cover a straw wreath with wool. Insert several 1.8 mm wires all the way around, making a hook at the end to correctly fix them. Join them up with paper covered wire, twisting each wire once so that it is fixed firmly.
Next, bend the wires into the shape you are going for and weave the strands of wool and other materials together. Cover the inside with the same wool used for the ring. You should continue weaving the different materials, working towards the range of colours desired.
Finally, stick on all the dry materials with hot glue. Make a handtied bouquet with the fresh materials in the structure.
