Describa las técnicas, las herramientas y los materiales que utiliza en su trabajo.
I learned to work with the 'Frivolite' technique at the Normal Teachers' School, from a teacher in Bessarabia. Over time, I learned to make traditional Maramuresan necklaces alone. I am a member of the Academy of Arts and Traditional Crafts from Maramures, Baia Mare. A technique present in Romania since the 19th century, string date is the most common way to make lace, used to decorate the interior of the house: tablecloths, decorative lace, in different shapes and colors. I also work 'cipcá' for decorating the interior of houses, but also for delicate collars for clothes. The 'frivolite' technique has been known in Europe since the 18th century, being taught in schools in Romania, especially in the interwar period. The results of this technique are laces of extraordinary fineness. I make decorative laces, but also imaginative paintings.
¿Cuál es su mensaje para las generaciones más jóvenes que podrían elegir su profesión?
I tell the young generations to never forget where they came from, to return to their roots and to respect Romanian tradition and culture.
