Meet the Artist

Anastasia is a maker of ceramic artwork, pottery, sculptural jewelry, photography, silver works and three beautiful children. She finds beauty in wabi-sabi aesthetics, organic shapes and natural colors. Raised in a small Russian town close to Caspian Sea, she followed her heart to the Mediterranean island of Majorca in 2004. She was drawn to the local pottery tradition, turquoise summers, spice-smelling autumns, blooming almond tree winters, red soil and warm hearted people. Now she shares her studio with other painters and print makers. When we visited her, the air had an aroma of steaming coffee and we couldn’t stop admiring her pottery collection of cups and plates made by vibrant ceramic artists from all around the world. So much magic in one place!

Explore Majorca

Majorca, the Mediterranean island off the east coast of Spain, is full of stunning beaches, plenty of gorgeous nature, and charming historic towns. No wonder it’s been the inspiration for generations of artists, from Chopin to Miro. Its towns are made up of tiny Spanish cafes, tapas bars, bustling markets, and cozy artisan shops to experience the local lifestyle. Or you can sun soak at the beach and explore the numerous coastal caves and cliffs for stunning views.

    Before the workshop, Anastasia asked me for my planning and what I wanted to do and learn during the workshop. I made a mood-board with ceramics I like, colors I like, textures I like, objects I like and mailed it to her. She immediately understood my mood.

    There was never a dull moment during my VAWAA with Anastasia. She welcomed me into her home, introduced me to her joyful family, showed me sights, beaches and local ceramicists that inspire her. She works with an abundance of clays and techniques- the learning was exponential. We had a flexible schedule that allowed for bursts of morning energy and creativity into the night. She is a natural teach Read more

    My two sons (18 & 21) and I had a wonderful time w/Anastasia and would very highly recommend the experience. We spent the day and she provided an overview of ceramic materials, her background and showed us around her studio. We enjoyed the passion she has for her art, the space she works in (an area of her home) and having the opportunity to meet her family, w/whom we shared a lovely lunch (whic Read more
