Vladimir Mahnyuk - birch bark.


 

Shadrinsk, Kurganskaya oblast, Russia

 

Vladimir Makhnyuk was born in Moscow in 1958. As a professional serviceman he soldiered within 15 years.

In 1992 in Shadrinsk he studied the birch bark handicraft and since 1995 this trade is his profession.

Nowadays the works by Vladimir are presented in museums of Russia and private collections in many countries.
It should be mentioned that birch bark samovars by Makhnyuk not once were gifted in the highest circles.

“Five years ago I aimed to open doors of Moscow museums and galleries for the birch bark woks and bring them into line with golden and silver goods.
That was the way the idea to make tableware occurred to me.
I started with simple milk pot, made not of the clay but the birch bark.
Then I tried to make a teapot, a teapot of the birch bark as well. Later a keg, a bucket and a winebowl appeared.
And finally I made a samovar.
One couldn’t boil water in it but to pour the tea from this samovar was a real pleasure!

Three years later I made the first birch bark samovar, not worse than its copper samovar-forefarther: with a pipe and smoke, everything like it should be.
The water is boiled because of burning wood chips and strobiles, which are placed into the steel boiler,
but all other details of this samovar are made only of the birch bark.

And when at hot midday I could drink cold bear from a birch bark keg,
although it was placed right in the sun, and have tea from the birch bark samovar,
I understood that I was near to reach my goal!”

Let me bring to your attention the unique goods, made of the birch bark only.
Every item can be used according to its intended purpose: in the teapot the tea can be made, in the milk pot the milk can be kept,
and you can fill in the samovar with the boiled water and its temperature will be kept for a long time.

And besides there is a fully-fledged birch bark samovar, in which the water can be boiled with firewood.
