Tradition of Pottery Craft in Russia
When studying information on archeological finds of settlements, towns and burial grounds of the Old Russian state, one can see that most of such materials are presented with fragments of various clay vessels.
Zhbannikovo Clay Whistle Toy
Zbannikovo toy is a traditional folk handicraft spread in the villages of Zhbannikovo, Rompino, Ryzhukhino and other settlements of the Gorodetski District of the Nizhni Novgorod Region.
Abashevo Clay Whistles
In the 19-20th cc the village of Abashevo was the leading pottery centre of Russia. Clay toys made by Abashevo masters were exhibited in Moscow, London and Paris. They are profoundly traditional: from generation to generation the artisans passed down these peculiar images of domestic animals, birds, deer, horsemen, ladies, etc., and yet, each of the masters let these images deep inside and breathed life into them, creating inimitable inspired characters.
Kargopol Clay Toys
As compared to bright and clear-coloured Filimonovo and Dymkovo toys, these figurines from the northern lands of Russia might seem pretty stern. However, this first impression is only due to the palette including black, dark-yellow and brown colours. As for the toys subject matter, they have lots of amusing images, sculpted plainly but with great warmth and folk wit.
Filimonovo Clay Toys
These wonderful handmade ornamented clay toys are a famous handicraft of the village of Filimonovo in the Tula Region. Here lived the last masters who revived the forgotten art in the 1960s. The toys are amusing and fanciful, but at the same time simple in manner and very expressive. The majority of Filimonovo toys are traditional whistles.
Dymkovo Toys
Colourful Dymkovo figurines, whistles among them, represent the most famous and one of the oldest clay handicrafts of Russia.
