Crystals look most realistically in the video, so I highly recommend watching it. You can find a video in the gallery along with photos.
“Memories” – Crystallized Sculpture
Measurements (LxWxH) 5.5″(14cm) x 3.5″(9cm) x 13″(33cm)
“Last night I spend reminiscing… And though it’s hard to believe, even hurtful memories seemed healing now. It feels like my heart is blooming now. It’s finally free of worries. I swear you will always take a special place in my heart.”
The original artwork is sculpted from Сosclay (flexible polymer clay) and crystallized. I also use acrylic paints pigments, metal and varieties of other materials. I grow crystals directly on the sculpture. Actually, crystals never ask how they should grow 🙂 They often grow pretty randomly. Although their behavior depends on the weather, temperature, humidity, pressure, magnetic field and God knows what else. Even sounds can influence the algorithm of crystal growth. That’s why I do my best to play good music for them 🙂 It would not be an exaggeration to say that the Universe itself participates in the process of creating each sculpture. That makes each piece especially unique.
Any questions? I’m happy to help!
