Ukrainian-born artist Vladimir Kanevsky creates beautiful handcrafted porcelain flowers. Although trained as an architect, Vladimir professes to a life-long love of botanics. Starting with a tableware project for designer Howard Slatkin’s former NYC shop over twenty years ago, his work found an instant audience.
Since then, design icons and style makers from Oscar de la Renta and Carolyne Roehm to Deeda Blair and the late Alberto Pinto all became collectors. But it is his remarkable flowers that have brought him fame. Meticulous research and painstaking execution bring life and vitality to his work. It is a marvelous melding of realism and artistic interpretation.
