About

Pedestral

My name is Eliška Monsportová and I am currently studying Glass at the UMPRUM university in Prague. I enjoy doing sports, traveling, creating, learning, meeting new people and comunicating with them and constantly evolving myself. I succesfully ended my secondary education in ceramic design major and this is a reason why are applied shapes used mainly for the table department so close to my heart. Newly I am trying to combine multiple materials together. I am learning how to machine plenty new materials and refine glass various techniques. My dream is to make aesthetically attractive, clean, but used things.
I am still seeking my way to loose objects. I am a very thoughtful person so when it comes to the loose thing it usually has a deeper meaning for me, which a viewer may or may not discover.

Most of my time is spent in shop floors where I realize my projects. I love to sketch my surroundings so I can use it formy future
designing. Process is very important for me, because I like to watch the changes of materials, forms, visuals as well as being
a part of that process

If you find something interesting for you let me know 🙂
