Work of the artist: 

"Garden" is the space between heaven and earth, between nature and what humans create. Garden is a very special space of its own with symbolic meaning. My "gardens" are images of human life, reflecting stages of human relationships. I use different materials to build my "gardens": Stoneware clay, porcelain, silver and gold foil, sometimes pure silk. These materials fit well together, showing the same valence in elegance and quality. They tell the never ending story of love and hate, of freedom and dependence, of grief and joy."
