Kirov, , RUSSIA


I was born in 1988 in Kirov city (Russia). I have been studying technologies of art processing of glass since 2009. I have an experience with such technologies as a fusing, slumping, beadmaking, classical and Tiffany stained-glass windows, glassblowing and casting. In 2009-2010 I was trained within work experience internship and externship on the basis of the stained-glass studio in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. After graduation I stayed at the letting-out department as a lecturer. Since 2010 I have been teaching at the Department of Technology and Design of Vyatka State University (Kirov city, Russia). During the period from 2011 to 2016 I had additional trainings: basic and advanced technologies of lampwork with Anna Ivanova in Chelyabinsk city (Russia) and advanced technologies of fusing at the School of Art Glass of Miriam Di Fiore, in Morniko-Lozana (Italy). In the beginning of Summer 2017 I was awarded Fulbright Fellowship for the Fall 2017 semester at San Jose State University (California, USA) where I observed glass blowing and casting class with Cassandra Straubing. Currently I am freshman graduate student at Saint Petersburg Art and Industry Academyc learning new glass techniques.
