About

My work-that's me and I truly believe, that a man is not what he takes with him, but what he leaves behind.

Hello! My name is Mariya.

About my wood carving techniques:
I use different kinds of wood: walnut wood, maple, pear wood, cherry wood, mahogany, but my favorite is boxwood.

I cannot tell you the brand of the tools that I use.
They are custom made for me personally.
I started with 2 chisels and 1 knife
and gradually appointed myself what I need.
The blade is hand forged of shear cushion steel.
I mostly use knives, home made carving knives, chisels for carving.

I never use wood, which hasn’t dried at least 5 years,
to avoid deformation at a later stage.
After the work is finished I impregnate wood with warm natural mineral oil, which seals the pores of the wood.
Once dry well, I impregnate wood with a special mixture, which I make myself by pure beeswax and other two ingredients without the use of chemicals.
This is a very old recipe with excellent results.
Over the years, the wood becomes more beautiful with time..

All my carvings are completely original work from creating the project to their full completion,
costing months of hard creative work. But the pleasure of good results is worth it!

If you try, you will see, that it's literally impossible to work on a miniature longer then four - five hours at once (even if you take breaks).
After that time your sight becomes blurred.

All artwork is hand-stamped on the back with mountain black wax, my original signature.

Thank you,
Mariya
