Within the fast rhythm of the modern world, the feeling of time becomes lost. Life is dynamic- but art is internal. In our creations we stop time. It has no power over images that we produce. Characters, feeling of form, images and silhouettes are born from clay. They gain their material embodiment and come to life in marble, bronze, porcelain and granite.
Studio art was established in the year 1965.
We admire: art, Russia, people and hard work.
We like: eternal classic of antique art, establishment of an individual in the epoch of Renaissance and the search for inspiration of artists of the XIX-XX centuries. We live and interestingly observe the modern time and try to reflect it for the contemporaries and future generations.
