An original design of hand-made functional and decorative ceramics in white earthenware or stoneware.
Iveta studied ceramics in her home country of the Czech Republic before working for a TV Film Cartoon Studio in Zlin. Iveta's dream was always to have her own studio and this has come true when converting her garage in to the studio pottery in West Sussex and establishing her company Iveta Goddard Ceramics in 2004. Her contemporary unique pieces, which encompasses innovative wall plaques, clocks and lamps built by slabs, bowls and cups thrown on the wheel and a range of coasters, tealights and jewellery is now sold in an impressive host of galleries and to private collectors both in the UK and ouverseas, including Japan and Australia. Iveta's recent work certainly has a rustic charm and blurs the line between being pretty and practical She says: "I enjoy the whole process of creating something from an idea which can come from anywere at any time. For example the idea for the shape of the clocks that I make came from an interesting stone that I saw in an ornamental garden". She continues: "Using the natural texture of clay with minimal use of coloured glazes to create something that someone will appreciate and bring into their home is what really motivates me." Iveta reveals her proudest works moments: "Every time someone comes up to me at a show or exhibition and says that they bought something from me a number of years ago and it still has pride of place somewere in their house."
