Slava Burlovič



“I always liked to write beautifully. When, years ago, my husband died I gradually started to make beautiful things, to occupy and entertain myself and to feel better.”

Slava found a new medium for handicraft that does not follow Slovene traditions, but is quite beautiful and special. She makes greeting-cards of parchment paper that is produced with a special procedure and adorns them with her own texts in calligraphy. Her products have drawn quite a lot of attention and she has received several awards. She makes them as gifts and her greeting card Peace on Earth was sent to the Vatican as a present.

Slava Burlovic is a native of the village of Račica near Sežana. She has lived in Australia for over fifty years and resides in Melbourne.
