Vladimir Kanevsky Floral Sculptures

April 26, 2016

I recently became familiar with the work of Ukranian artist Vladimir Kanevsky from a magazine article in Veranda Magazine online, these delicate floral creations are amazing. Kanevsky models the flower sculptures himself, modeling the flowers in porcelain, the stems and leaves are made from metal. In the beginning, leaves and stems were made from porcelain as well but broke too easily. Kanevsky finds inspiration in antique Botanical prints from the 1600’s and 1700’s, he adds realism to his sculptures by including bug bites and bent stems. Today Vladimir Kanevsky lives in Ft. Lee, New Jersey and says he’s creating sculptures based on flowers and not making fake flowers. I love porcelain sculptures and his are some of the most amazing I’ve seen, the intricacy and details that go into something like a flower sculpture is very intense. In addition to the floral and berries sculptures, Kanevsky also has a flower in antique container collection and tabletop, we’ll be taking a look at these different collections this week so check back and see these beautiful designs and finished products, Enjoy!!!
