A Collection of porcelain vases, Clouds (Oblaka) - a combination of naive animal motifs and the Wedgwood technology, which evokes contemplating clouds drifting across the sky. The decoration of the original Wedgwood vases was realistic motifs borrowed from Classical mythology as well as the 18th century social life. Their color palette and soft execution may today seem frolicsome or even childish, which inspired me to select the subject of silly puns and to approach them in the style of illustrations found in children's books. Judge for yourself: the first two motifs are entitled It's Raining Hippos (Hroší) and Fur Coach (Kočí).
