Jana Zornik is a fashion artefact designer/maker, a current studio resident at Sarabande Foundation and a MA Graduate in Fashion Artefact from the University of the Arts London (UAL).
Jana is interested in creating body related Artefacts. Emotionally interactive objects. Narratives. Expressing personal emotions and states of mind.
As a creative as well as a person she is fascinated by discarded things. Creatively wise about materials that lay around and nobody thinks of them as precious. She possesses the ability to see them in a different way, shape them into artistically and fashionably beautiful fragile objects. In her practice she combines the discarded and the valued in order to enhance each other. She designs along as she go and gets inspired by materials and hands-on studio processes that she discovers on the way. They are the core part of her creative practice.
The intuitional is underpinned with the idea/concept/narrative/emotional state.
