About Me


I live in a nice town near Moscow and work at a small pottery studio. I made a long way to find my calling. I worked as an economist for 7 years. Then I decided to leave the office and try something different. That's how I finally found myself at the pottery wheel. Besides my endless love to ceramics, I like to travel and explore new places. But I think that every place is empty and uninteresting without the people living there. That's why I'm here :)


Being creative: painting with watercolors, making ceramic tableware, dancing to (and listening to) good music, cooking delicious dishes (and taking inspiration for them in the world cuisine).
