About me


I was born on September 11-th 1963 in Mlada Boleslav, Czech Republic. After my studies on a secondary engineering school I worked as a drawer in OPP Bakov nad Jizerou. Later in the same factory I started to work with reed-mace. In a local workshop I got experience with process technology and basic weaving technique and participated in a collection production for Center of Peoples Art Production.

After the factory was closed I arranged a workroom in my house. Next to well-proven patterns I started to use both historical and new and modern patterns. Products assortment covers bags, hats of various shapes and sizes, scuttles, bowls, slippers, various wall decorations and many more.

Nowadays I am one of a few last manufacturers, who can still handle these weaving techniques. I share my experience not only with my two daughters, but occasionally I teach interested people in handcraft courses that are held in various places around the country.

Regularly I take part in design competitions of Cesky narodni podnik, where I got special credit in the years of 2001, 2002 a 2006.

I created a collections of historical replicas and preview of my own production for permanent expositions of local traditions museums in Bakov nad Jizerou, Mlada Boleslav and Turnov.
During the whole year I participate in programs presenting craft skills to public in open air museums - Skanzen Vysociny na Veselem Kopci, Muzeum lidových staveb v Kourimi, skanzen v Chanovicích, Muzeum vychodnich Cech in Hradec Kralove, skanzen ve Straznici, and many more.
