I knew about clay and ceramics when I was a 10-year old girl. My father, who is a painter, told me about a ceramics studio for small children. So it began like child`s hobby. The master of the studio, Nikolay Vakulenko, is still working today in the same place. When I go to this studio I always feel like a small girl. After many years I returned to ceramics as a professional artist.
While making my small sculptures, I think about many things: climate and genetic experiments, “pumping” energy- and bio- resources, internet and computers, future “forms of life” on our planet, and about aggressive man-made things. My art is a mix of clay, metallic objects, fur, wood, and other media.
