Heritage traditions of the Russian North.
In the popular imagination, virtually all Russia is “north,” cold and imponderable. Yet within this immense Eurasian landmass, there is a region traditionally known as the “Russian North”. It is currently experiencing the revival of traditional crafts which I am proudly bringing to you as part of my heritage.
Made with: hand carved pine tree wood
Size: 14.5 x 4 x 16 cm.
The story of this crafty family goes back to the beginning of the 20th century. Since their great grandfather picked up woodworking, the craft was passed on and perfected. Every wood piece created by Urii and Evgenia has it's own unique story to tell that started way before it was discovered and molded. The wood is then carefully worked to preserve its character in the best heritage traditions of the Russian North.
