Combining the Russian school of ceramics with Baroque and Renaissance elements in her sculptures and figurines
She's an award-winning Berlin-based artist who has been successfully working with ceramics for 20 years, combining her original traditional training from the Russian school of ceramics with Baroque and Renaissance elements in her sculptures and figurines. She has changed several countries of residence, but has always followed her own recognizable style.
According to Elya Yalonetski, ceramics is a very mystical art medium. Being very fragile, it can still outlast ages and eras. With mostly unknown authors, each ceramic piece retains the personal aura of its creator and entire cultures are named after specific ceramic styles. With over 1000 objects sold to collectors from all over the world, Elya Yalonetski hopes that a few thousand years later someone will be able to "read" the emotions from her artwork, just as she can feel them when she admires the work of ancient craftsmen in the archaeological museum.
