The brand Zeleni godovi was created to offer various wooden items that I create.
The basic idea of creation is functionality, with some unusuality and, of course, some beauty. Everyday objects that are made with passion, letting the wood lead the craftsman wherever it wants. Each type of wood has its own texture, colour and smell. Each tree has its own line, its growth rings. Therefore, we can hope for a result but we can never be sure of the final product.
I was born in Croatia, lived in France and came back to Croatia just recently. I’m a civil engineer specialised in environmental protection but I never found myself in that field of work so after 10 years of working in an office I decided to do what pleases me. Whole my life I worked with wood, metal… creating, repairing. It was important to listen to how I feel and try to follow that path. I knew creating in wood would fit me the most.
I have always loved the warmth of wood and I have always sought the comfort in the nature. I guess that’s why I try to avoid creating objects with sharp lines, I don’t find them natural, I just follow the natural flow.
I really enjoy playing, inventing and solving problems so I’m looking forward to new projects. I enjoy to find a new piece of really old wood and leave it in my atelier while I wait for an idea to come up.
