Pebbles from the Drava river – Dravčki

The ‘Dravčki’ are pebble stones from the Drava river, collected, drawn on, and framed by myself and my family, my mother Ivanka, father Marjan, brother Tomi, and my boyfriend Simon.

First of their kind were made more than ten years ago. We have always been fascinated with stones, by their curious shapes and colour. Wherever we travelled to, we would always bring back lots of pebbles to decorate our flower beds.

Many Sunday afternoons were spent by the Drava, where we collected interesting pebbles, finding some which were composed of two or more rocks of different colour and hardness. Sometimes the rocks formed a pattern reminding me of tiny faces, which motivated me to draw eyes, nose and mouth onto them. My parents liked the result very much and encouraged me to continue making what my mother named the ‘Dravčki’ (pebbles from the Drava).
