BANJA SUGA

Banja suga izraz je koji koriste mornari i ribari za onaj dio obale ili broda koji je prosaran naslagama morske trave i skoljki ostao na suhom nakon sto ga je okupala morska pjena. Izraz je preuzet iz talijanskog jezika gdje bagna asuga znaci smociti – osusiti. Moju viziju 'banja suga', dizajniranu tehnikom filcanja vune u kombinaciji sa svilom, tilom, skoljkama i staklom, inspirirale su naslage kojim je more 'oblijepilo' obalu lukobrana.
Vuna je zanemareno prirodno bogatstvo koje se na otoku Cresu uglavnom baca, a nema ni prerade. Kao voditeljica projekata Udruge Ruta Cres, u proteklih 12 godina upoznala sam sve mogucnosti prerade vune pretvarajuci njenu ljepotu u uporabnu vrijednost. Cilj projekata bio je popularizacija vune kroz kreativne radionice filcanja sa djecom i mladima te izradu upotrebnih predmeta, suvenira i umjetnickih radova.
Filcanje je tehnika prerade vune koja se temelji na svojstvu vlakana da se uslijed mehanickog i toplinskog djelovanja, a uz pomoc sapuna, medusobno upletu u cvrstu strukturu. Vuna se nakon cesljanja moci vodom i sapunom, a zatim gnjeci i valja. Vunena vlakna isprepletena kao riblja krljust, na kraju se zapinju i uplicu u gust i neraskidiv materijal — filc ili pust.
Ova tehnika oblikovanja posebno je zanimljiva djeci u vrticu i njihovim tetama, skolarcima i njihovim nastavnicima te mladima i ostalim kreativcima.
Osim u Hrvatskoj, rad s creskom vunom pramenkom predstavljen na Feltrosa 2009. u Barcis,Italija te na izlozbi "Vuna Evrope " 2010. u Bergerie Nationale de Ramboullet ,Francuska.
Rad na projektu Pier Shear moj je novi iskorak u istrazivanju i uzivanju s vunom.
Banja suga je ovdje izlozena kao tapiserija, a stalno je zelim omotati oko tijela pretvorenu u kostime. Takav ce biti nastavak ove price....

Banja suga

Banja suga is an expression used by sailors and fishermen that describes a dry part of a boat or coast that is punctuated by sediments of seaweed and seashells after it was bathed by sea foam. The expression comes from Italian bagnato asciuto which means wet – dry. My vision of banjašuga, designed by felting technique in combination with silk, net lace, seashells and glass , is inspired by sediments that are coating the pier bank.
Wool is often neglected natural wealth that is usually thrown away and not salvaged on the island of Cres. In the last 12 years as a projects manager of association Ruta Cres, I have got an insight as to how to process wool transforming its beauty into something useful. The aim of the projects was to popularize wool through creative felting workshops for children and youth and make souvenirs, works of art and everyday objects.
Felting is a wool processing technique based on the property of fibers to entwine into a hard structure as a result of application of pressure and heat. After carding, wool is not spun into threads but scored with water and soap, and then pressed and rolled. Due to the composition of wool thread, which is covered in scales similar to that of fish, the fibers get entwined, tangled and twisted in the process. In the end we get a thick and firm material — felt.
This design technique is especially interesting to kindergarten and school children and their teachers and creative persons. Apart from Croatia, my work with wool from Cres called pramenka has been shown on Feltrosa in 2009 in Barcis, Italy and on exhibition “The wools of Europe” in 2010 in Bergerie Nationale de Ramboullet, France.
Working on Pier Shear project is my new big step forward in exploring and enjoying working with wool. Banjasuga is here exhibited as a tapestry, but I want to wrap it around bodies as costumes. This will be the continuation of this story…
