Olena Dziyadevych: I don’t stitch the ornaments, I knit them
June 23, 2010 14:45
"Most often I make floral ornaments. I scrutinize manuals, albums of national Ukrainian costumes and try to reproduce after the pictures the ornaments that ancient masters used to create in the old times..."
Semen Tlusty: Aspen toy drives the devil away
June 23, 2010 14:33
"You know who is killed by an aspen stake? Vampires are. So the children were given these toys starting from their childhood for evil not to touch them. And because of this the aspen toy has the strength of a guardian talisman".
Olexander Kovalchuk: Each artist should have a Mamay
June 23, 2010 13:46
"Among all the artists, sculptures, wood carvers – that is all the people involved in the decorative and applied art - practically everybody one time or another touches upon the Kozak Mamay theme. And everyone sees it his own way... The conception itself and what everything should look like I had been cherishing for a year."
Yuriy Melnychuk: Even the most poor girl used to embroider at least 30 shirts and chemises
May 21, 2010 01:41
Yuri Melnytchuk, a member of Kiev museum of Ivan Honchar, is perhaps considered the most known connoisseur of the art of national embroidery in Ukraine. Starting from 1996, he has been teaching ladies to make embroideries in a correct manner and running a thematic studio.
Zoya Stashuk: My task is to revive ancient pysankas
May 12, 2010 18:03
"There is a wonderful album of M. Kulzhynsky issued in Moscow and named «Description of the collection of national pysankas». 2219 pysankas are shown there, so it takes just to republish this album... Literally – there are only several copies of Kulzhynsky book. But it contains unique ancient pysankas".
Tetyana Sosnovskya: Painting Pysankas I consider pysankatherapy
May 12, 2010 17:26
"Because in whatever mood you are and whatever problems you have you forget about everything when starting to make pysankas. Maybe it really is that way because pysankas carry lucid ideas and bright hopes for the future so that they drive all the bad thoughts away".
Rayisa Pavlenko: I hadn’t heard about didukhs until 2000
May 12, 2010 17:11
"..all the time working with straw I knew it could serve not only as material for making pictures. And certainly there existed different traditions connected with straw but during Soviet times I couldn’t find anything about them in the books or get any information from people".
Iryna Sulikovska: It happens that the dolls look for their masters
May 12, 2010 16:58
"..I said I would sell it for that sum and added that the doll’s name was Dana. And the woman suddenly replied that her daughter’s name was Dana, too. That means the doll was not selling because it was waiting for that very girl".
Iryna Bilay: In straw weaving each component means something
May 12, 2010 16:46
"We make everything from the rye. Rye is the symbol of life, so here you have the main symbolic meaning... A circle is often present in our work and the circle implies the guard charm, the family, family tree, children, grandchildren and grand-grandchildren – the continuity of the family."
Ivan Pryhodko: Be Sure to Understand How to Inspire Your Creation with Your Soul’s Energies
May 12, 2010 12:51
"...the nature teaches you how to make beautiful things, the only thing you need to do is understand it and do what it tells you to".
