After graduate work presentation, the reviewer – art critic, curator, leader research assistant of Elaginoostrovsky Palace-Museum of Russian Decorative and Applied Arts, Elena Afanasievna Vlasova, invited me as a participant of The International Exhibition of Ceramics and Glass in landscape VI edition with «Algorithms of Jugendstil». The largest exhibition of ceramics and glass in Saint Petersburg is held outdoors near Palace Elagin. Ceramic artworks, sculptures, installations are traditionally presented at the lawn in front of the Palace.

This year I graduated with bachelor degree from Saint-Petersburg State University’s Faculty of Phylology e Arts, department «Decorative and applied arts». My specialization is ceramics, so I created a ceramic lamp (height 1 m 80 cm) as a degree work for Palace of Matilda Kshesinskaya – now there’s State Museum of Political History of Russia (Kuybysheva Street 2-4). My project called «Algorithms of Jugendstil», the contemporary art work I created have being guided by impressions while research German Jugendstil. My degree instructor was a remarkable artist, ceramist and our lecturer – Grigory Vladimirovich Molchanov. This work hardly had been done without his aid and wisdom! Thank you! The lamp itself I made on the basis of a ceramic factory «Pallada».
