movement and visual depth. The vessel has multi-layered glazing applications

do the justice! The heart is hand built. The butterfly comes out of the heart

Birch Jewelry Tree.
This sculptural jewelry tree holder is designed to hang necklaces and earrings and hold rings.
A year ago a boutique owner told me that may of her customers were asking to sell the jewelry
display tree that I had in her store to display my jewelry. Later on at the Art Show a women
begged me to sell the same tree and I finally gave in and sold it….
My strongest inspiration comes from Mother Nature and its influences on the shape of plants,
trees and rocks, both on land and underwater. I grew up in St. Petersburg, Russia in very cold
and wet climate where you find many majestic birch woods in the suburbs. So… I decided to
sculpture birch trees and make them functional. This is my new work, I put many hours into
developing the surface that reminds you of birch tree bark. The tree has slip applications and
high fired. Signed and dated bottom. Dimensions: 15 3/4 inches tall and 7 1/2 inches wide
(including branches) .
