According to the exhibition organiser, Natalia Yankovskaya, porcelain, ceramic and glass pieces are always on sale but have never before been shown in an exhibition format. Funds generated from the sale of the convent’s produce will be spent on renovating its training workshops, alongside its comprehensive school (with Orthodox focus) and its church.

The Ella Glass stained glass workshop initially worked with stained glass to decorate the church, and then the idea came to make Christmas gifts. The workshop has been experimenting with temperature, texture and combinations of materials, using not only flat glass baking but other techniques, generating a wider colour palette.

All items are made by hand and fired in the oven at 720-880 degrees. “We can make stained glass windows entirely from small parts, which is what’s special. Many foreign masters come to us to learn this technique,” underlines Yuri Molotkov, who heads the workshop.

The Ella Ceramica workshop’s goods are widely known among fans and connoisseurs of ceramics. Porcelain articles are kept in private collections in Belarus, Russia, Poland, France, Germany and the UK.

The exhibition — demonstrating gifts, stained glass and other artistic crafts by Ella Ceramica and Ella Glass — will run for almost a month.
