Svetlana Kapanadze - wood carving.


Moscow, Russia


My name is Svetlana. I was born on Sakhalin island in 1972, spent my childhood beyond the Arctic Circle,
married a Georgian and have been living in Moscow for more than 20 years.

Woodcarving has been my hobby for not more than six years.
I have never dreamed of carving flowers, or caskets, or kitchen utensils.
The carved icon was the one which pushed me to try a cutting tool.


From my childhood I was fond of drawing, sculpturing;
easily and heatedly I mastered different types of decorative and applied arts, but I’ve never studied it professionally.
In my school time during my visits to Moscow, I used to comb museums and stroll all over miles and miles of ancient streets,
studied thoroughly manorial and merchant mansions.
Grown up I’ve self-mastered painting in oils, embroidery and other ladies’ fancywork.

I’ve never been particularly religious, although I’m rather good at religion history, ecclesiastical architecture and icon painting.
But I lost my peace when once I saw small, almost black because of time, ancient carved icons in the State Historical Museum.
I even dreamed the icons in my night dreams.

So that is the story how I gained such a rear lady’s profession of a wood carver.
Of course I have to learn a lot in this profession but self-perfection is the charm of the point!
