About the Author
Mirka Janeckova is an award winning contemporary jewellery maker based in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2013 and from Royal College of Art, London in 2016.
Her practice is based on interdisciplinary research – she work across the disciplines of jewellery, metal, glass and ceramics. Mirka work experimentally and her aim is to broaden our perception of what materials could be used for.
Her interest in glass started during her final year at Royal College of Art as a collaboration with Swarovski where she was looking at ways how to seamlessly connect glass and metals. Later, she made several research trips to Czech Republic to explore her home country rich glass tradition which was funded by Association for Contemporary Jewellery. The findings from these research were published and together with her own practice will inform her new book.
