The ceramic sculptures of Ljubica Zgonec Zorko are an interesting variation on the Slovene visual art scene, in particular because of their specific technology and motifs, even though in recent times an increasing number of Slovene visual artists have been engaged in one of the most demanding and simultaneously oldest applied art and art genres. The motifs of Ljubica Zgonec Zorko have been connected with water from the very beginning, and she draws inspiration especially from fossils of shellfish, more accurately shells and ammonites, in which spiral forms dominate. The form refers to the ancient symbol of divine presence, as it is a mathematical constant in the form of the golden ratio, sectio aurea or proportio divina, the complementary symbolic of eternity (shell) and the four philosophical elements, which in the visual whole appears quit realistic, as if it were a natural find.
