Exhibition of Yasnaya Polyana Ceramics

3November 2 - December 2, 2016
Yasnaya Polyana Cultural Center

An exhibition of Yasnaya Polyana ceramics will open in the foyer of the Yasnaya Polyana Cultural Center. It will feature clay dishes of the types that were used in Russia in the 18th-19th centuries. There will be 16 items on display.

These objects were all made by the potter of the Applied Handicrafts Department Elena Barabanova and designed in the style of the Yasnaya Polyana ceramics.

Visitors to the exhibition will see various kinds of pots, jugs, plates and bowls, and also older types of ceramic vessels that look quite strange for us today.

Yasnaya Polyana painted ceramics have their own style created at the Yasnaya Polyana museum. It is mostly based on plant patterns done in the technique of engobe painting (i.e. painting with clays of different colours) that was also known here in Leo Tolstoy’s lifetime.
