Rhythm is the repetition of phenomena observed in nature, movement. Spring, summer, autumn, winter still repeat in their own rhythm. We can capture rhythm in different activities: the arrival and disappearance of a wave in the flow of water, the passage of time day after day, the rise and set of the sun. Rhythm of life, where movement, development and alternation of certain periods.

Today, the whole world is waiting for the days to pass again in normal rhythm without any restrictions or closures. The experienced impressions of the rhythm of nature have been captured on bone china with repetitions of different surfaces, structures as well as similar objects. The work completed in recent years is presented.
