Lenka Suchanek is a self-taught lacemaker and lace designer / artist found along the Artists Walk at White Rock Beach

lenkaLucky & Sugar-toes met Lenka Suchanek as she had her tent set up at White Rock Beach as part of the Artist Walk program. Lenka does work that is museum quality one art gallery owner said who saw her work. When Lucky told her he creates and markets his own postcards, greeting cards, magnets, and canvas prints, Lenka told him last year she wanted to send some postcards overseas and purchased some of our postcards up at Save On Foods (Semiahmoo Shopping Centre) 1641-152nd Street, Surrey, BC V4A 4N3. Lenka loves squirrels and is an Official White Rock Beach Goodwill Ambassador.

Lenka Suchanek is a self-taught lacemaker and lace designer.
http://lenkas.com/

She works in the centuries old European techniques of handmade bobbin lace and needle lace, bringing them to life in pictures, sculptures and wearable art. Specializing in metal lace, she uses fine wires of copper, bronze, steel, and precious metals to create unique pieces that are traditional and modern at the same time. Lenka’s work has been exhibited around the world, and received awards and recognition for the original approach to the traditional craft.

After many years of exploring, learning and mastering lacemaking techniques, Lenka still feels as a disciple:

“The more I learn the more I understand and appreciate the depth of knowledge, breadth of skill and height of artistic expression of the past lacemakers. With an utmost respect, I am following in their footsteps , carrying on the tradition of transcending time in pursuit of beauty.”

This website features Lenka’s lace work, completed pieces as well as work in progress. It is designed and maintained with a goal to promote interest in the traditional lacemaking techniques and to revive the art of appreciation of fine crafts. Internet can provide all the information we need, but only human hands and hearts can keep the lace truly alive.

OMG – We have some #whiterock beach postcards going to #MEXICO

miss-mexicoThis customer at the WhiteRockBeach gallery is now an official White Rock Beach Goodwill Ambassador. She wanted some COOL postcards to mail to family in Mexico. She must be a model as she was changing her pose. Lucky could not decide which photo to use, so he animated 3 photos.
