Keeping craft alive

Monika Váleková

Keeping craft aliveThrough her work, artist Mária Krajčová has been purposefully reviving wire craft for more than two decades. Being inspired by old wire products and techniques, she brings to light the varied decorative elements, using them in a novel way and making them more varied through combining them with metal plates and stone. As a result, they take on a new appearance. While meticulously adhering to artistic and craft purity in relation to particular work of art, she transforms these products into both everyday items and works of art. In this interview, Mária Krajčová reminisced about significant personalities and events that had a profound effect on her artistic journey.
