Emphasizing the wild resiliency of seeds, Nataliya Vladychko — a Ukrainian artist specializing in painting, drawing, and sculpture — creates absolutely stunning glass sprouts. These pieces draw attention to the delicacy, details, and vivid colors applied.
My education as an artist was in the Ukraine, a classical art education with a great deal of emphasis on drawing and painting. Because of this, I always start with a precise drawing or watercolor with a great deal of attention for detail. That focus is the same when I’m making works in glass, the details fascinate me, delicate color changes and graceful movements, always with attention for the space around the objects. The way patterns, textures and movements repeat themselves, changing only slightly each time, and then, coming together to form larger structures, has always fascinated me.Nataliya Vladychko
