About:

Born in Poland in 1995, growing up close to the Baltic sea and numerous forests surrounding her hometown, caused Hanna Kowalska to develop a strong affinity with polish nature. This connection has become a powerful tool that she’s still trying to channel into her art. She first became fascinated with art jewellery since taking part in a student exchange program at Saimaa University of Applied Sciences in Finland. Ever since then her practice has been heavily influenced by experimentation and the use of non-precious materials such as plastic, sand, and resin.

“Sandscapes:

The pieces were created with the idea of researching the impact that the natural environment has on creating national heritage. The aim has been achieved by the use of a base made of sand from Baltic beaches and nesting in it elements made of a characteristic material related to Polish art - amber. The series Sandscapes encapsulates the steady and yet, always changing Polish coastline – sculpted by the sea over millions of years. Sand dune lines and patterns sculpted by the wind and changing daily. Created objects, therefore, have become small sculptures containing the multi-faceted landscapes of the Baltic seashore, transferable images of polish natural heritage.
