Jaroslav Hrustalenko is an internationally renowned artist based in the UK. He has been engaged in creative practice and 3D design as well as in teaching craft pottery and making art ceramics professionally since 1989.
A Ukrainian descendant of multi-ethnic ancestors, Jaroslav grew up in a multi-lingual environment saturated with culture, surrounded by art, music, literature and science. His creativity is driven by the passion for colour, shape and strong visual impression. Jaroslav constantly explores the natural world, fine art, science, music and dance, building his body of work on a broad multicultural background. The pieces can be viewed in a number of combinations, showing respectively different visual interaction.
Presented body of work renders several series of teapots and mugs with an intension to convey the sheer impression of energetic and graceful moves performed by dancers, swans, cockerels, peacocks or live chess figures. The collections can be viewed in numbers of ways: as one whole composition; as pairs in different combinations that show respectively different interaction or, as entirely separate pieces.
