Settled and safe creating

Juliya Laukhina's cosmic mokume gane on PolymerClayDaily.com

This cosmic-looking mokume gane brooch from Moscow’s Juliya Laukhina stopped me in my tracks. Turns out, a while ago Juliya’s home caught fire and she and her family moved to another place. She’s finally feeling settled and safe.

“The tragic mood has already passed, everything will be fine. I will sculpt here, but it takes time while we settle down. A beautiful night like this I wish to all. Sculpt, create, create! It is not so important that others buy or not, appreciate or not, it is important for the tranquility of the soul to create something,” she says.

Juliya’s Instagram and Etsy are full of pieces that reflect her gratitude and tranquility.
