Mirka is a spec. assistant at the Department of Sculpture, Object and Installation. When working with objects and installations she uses various, often non-traditional materials. She likes an overlap into other media and collaboration. Markéta and Mirka have started working together since 2013 on the collection of vases vases Bio-0-5 (bio as life, nature, inspired by a collection of herbarium herbs). They have linked sculptural casting techniques (flowers and insects) with ceramic (porcelain casting into plaster molds) for collection of vases. The most recent mutual collaboration is a collection of vases IN, where they work with the inside of vases.
