I was sitting in restaurant with my friends and they told me: "Ivan, you surprised us every time with something unusual you make... Some day you will come with impossibles!!!" For example: (as Czech expressions saying) blue from a sky or wristwatch with a water fountain!!! So, that summer I surprised them...

"Dad, how about we'll make a sculpture together??? You design it, I forged it, Mike will make hand-blow glass to it, all three of us collaborated on it! You love a swans, how about return of the swans they always return to your pond." So, sketch and model we made. It gave us a thought to make a bigger sculpture "Return of the swans" and also thought for a documentary movie about three generations of artists collaborating together on one sculpture: "My blues and greens" we named the movie.

Marie Stankova was born outside of Prague, Czech Republic in 1928. She studied fashion design as a young woman and worked for the National Theater as a costume technician up until her retirement. Thirty years ago she started making crocheted jewelry with natural elements. This has evolved into her passion in her retirement. Friends and family bring her artifacts from around the world to incorporate into her art. Her current favorites are beach stones from the New Hampshire seacoast. She also enjoys using pieces of antique costumes which she salvages for their leather, metal, glass and fabrics. Marie’s works are distributed in Czech Republic galleries and are a favorite of many Czech celebrities. Her son in Exeter, NH has now decided to start to offer his mothers work in the United States. All of Marie’s jewelry are original pieces of art and no two are alike. The non-leather products are washable in soap and water.
