Elena Karpova - wooden and ceramic goods.


 

 

Smolensk, Russia

Greetings !

Let me introduce myself. My name is Elena Karpova. I studied in the unique College of Toy in Sergiev, Posad.
After I got married we moved to Smolensk where I gave birth to my three daughters.
I dreamed of working in a theatre since my childhood.
When my daughters grew up, I started my career as a theatre decorator and even took part in several shows.
All my time is devoted to the theatre, but had to leave it because of family circumstances.

When I discovered ceramics a new period of my life started !
I fell in love with clay, making clowns and painting vases.
Soon after that, a real miracle happened to me: I found faith in God!
My Faith and Love brought a real joy to me – my son.

My new passion is painting on wood.

I’m fond of working with texts; especially in Church Slavonic and from the Psalm book.
I dream of making a series of wooden panels devoted to Church holidays,
as well as Praise and Penitential Psalms by David, and will be happy to find a customer for this project.

I will be glad to receive big orders because they are a powerful incentive to my progress.
As an example, one of my recent works was illustrating on wooden panels a fairy tale by Konstantin Leontiev “Soul Child”.
Unprimed pine plates or so called furniture board were painted with tempera PVA, as for backgrounds,
usually I tint them thinly to emphasize the wood texture and let the wood “breath”.
