MAREK SVANA

In July 2011 I graduated from De Montfort University where I read Design Crafts at their Banbury campus. Through my studies I explored a range of traditional craft disciplines and chose to focus on work with metal, where I obtained my main jewellery skills. Enamels and enamelling have been significant in my recent production, giving me the opportunity to combine metal and colour. As well as practical skills, I learnt to work with computer software such as, Adobe Collection and 3D Max. I am a friendly and approachable Slovakian, and can work on my own or as a part of a team.
