Artist Svetlana is passionate about the fantasy world and its magical beings. Drawing inspiration from there, she creates gorgeous imagined hybrid creatures, with polymer clay, delicately decorated with bright crystals.
Svetlana is a solo artist with a passion for fantasy worlds behind HandmadeHome. Using polymer clay and crystallization processes, she combines nature, chemistry, and fantasy to sculpt dreamy beings from another dimension. The Unknown, which is very close but still not discovered, is reflected in Svetlana’s work. Just like dreams, her creations come to us from another dimension and are woven into reality, interacting with us through feelings and visual images. Svetlana tries to reveal invisible dimensions inside our habitual world and explore the infinities of reality and consciousness. Svetlana creates whimsical flora and fauna by taking natural forms found in nature and infusing them with emotions and moods. With these magical ingredients, she gives life to their feelings and reveals fragments of their being.Svetlana
The crystals that I grow directly on the sculptures resemble a magical concentrate, frozen in the doorway of reality—a wise yet invisible hand carefully creating a crystal structure, molecule by molecule. I have only partial control over the process. Crystals usually make decisions on their own about how they grow. The result is always a surprise. Isn’t it magic?Svetlana
