I studied clothing design for 4 years at the high school of fashion and design in Prostějov, and now I am in my second year of a bachelor's degree at the Technical University in Liberec, faculty of textiles, field of design. I have experience mainly in sewing and designing clothes. This textile design is one of my first works.

I live in a small village in the vicinity of forests and meadows, so I often went for walks and noticed individual stalks, sounds and perceived the atmosphere of my surroundings. Later I began to perceive the meadow as such.

I layed down in the grass and remembered the moments connected with nature. Picking primroses for tea and dandelions for honey or barrel rolling and horse riding. However, I was most interested in the tall grasses. I found them interesting precisely because of their height and structure. Along the entire length of the stems, we can notice a lot of small divisions and elements. When the stem consists of compound stalks, carpels and spikelets. At a closer look, the stalks themselves are longitudinally divided and vary in roughness depending on the type of plant. I was also interested in the fact that plants that are green and fresh at the beginning of the summer dry up as the summer progresses and their color changes to a yellowish, later brown color. In the case of grasses, we can perceive some plants as being completely green, and on the contrary, plants whose upper part, the spikelets, may be golden and it may not even be the end of summer. It is also interesting that green is associated with spring

and early summer. For us, the golden color is a symbol of drying up, thus the end of summer and the beginning of autumn.
