ROBERTA POTOCKA - University. of West Bohemia Pilsen - Inst. of Art & Design - Czech Republic

Roberta Potocka's inspiration for the Resilience theme comes from the structure of bones because this is a material which resists through the time and this is only what is left long after death.
She simplified the structure only to the natural line, which indicates the state of decay, and is also present within the linden wood, like a tree rings - meaning the length of life.
The second material she used, is the leather - showing the contrast between wood and leather.
Her collection includes the shoes, handbag and sunglasses.
