We have the pleasure to introduce on our pages the lady, artist which gives honor to Dionysius with her unique work on the glass. You can see here different themes, with fireworks of colors or precision filigree works , but always different, always with deep emotion and unique.
Visnja Zikic, about herself :
There are two things that made me devote myself to glass painting completely. Firstly, I come from a family who celebrate St Trifun as a family patron and have always worshipped wine. St Trifun was a patron of vine-growers, grapes and wine. Secondly, I studied chemistry at university and I watched the changes of coluor caused by chemical reactions in glass tubes. I found them fascinating. I also think that I inherited some skills from my talented parents. My main aim was to contribute to wine drinking culture so I started painting wine glasses and decanters. If you want to feel the full taste and smell of wine, it is very important that you choose the right shape of the glass. That is crucial. Wine glasses and wine are also a pleasure for all senses. They should be beautiful, worship-provoking and only then the satisfaction is complete. The motives I choose depend on the inspiration and purpose, sometimes on the user’s wish. The paints I use are long-lasting and stable. Glass painting gives me the freedom of artistic expression. Cooperation with people who use my glasses is a great pleasure for me, and I can see that the culture of wine drinking has reached the level which this Dionysian drink deserves.
