Exhibition series "Exhibit of the Month"

Event duration:
from 01 to 30 June 2020

The series of one-showpiece exhibitions is an other way to present the extensive collection of the Kaliningrad Regional Amber Museum, which includes around 16 000 depositary items. This way of demonstrating an art piece allows specialists, its author and guests to look at it out of the context of a themed exhibition.

Natalia Almazova. Kaliningrad
Flask "A Morning Fragrance", 2018–2019
Amber, mammoth's bone, metal, mother-of-pearl, wood

The flask was shown at the contest exhibition "BOTANICA", held within the Eighth International Biennial of Amber Artworks "Alatyr 2019", where it became laureate in the category "Mastery". The composition was also distinguished with a special diploma of the juror from Germany Burkhardt Göres "For the Finest Excellence of Amber Working".

Mostly, Natalia Almazova creates small statuary objects in carving technique. Rather often, she uses plots from literary works. In works by the artist, combination of delicate and sculptural carving, various textures of the used materials build spectacular multilevel voluminosity, which impresses a viewer.

Despite the seeming fragility, her works are notable for the great precision in design of structural elements, as well as for the fact that the artist makes the finest elements of construction from other materials, in particular from ivory.

Natalia Almazova was born in Kaliningrad in 1972. After the three-year education at the philological faculty in Kaliningrad State University, she got a job at "Rembyttechnika", where she mastered the profession of jeweller. She has been working with amber since 1996.
