... For me very important tradition of my country - a remarkable glass edge. In his work, I try to keep the naturalness of glass, not complicating the form, and only a little adjusting and changing the glass drops. The combination of clear glass and frosted engraving makes it possible to create compositions on the themes of paintings, images of his contemporaries, stories on the themes of Russian proverbs and sayings. Fascinates me silvery engraving, which is how the lace falls on the surface of the glass and fills the content of this object.
