Artist Elena Zaycman has found playful, cheerful ways to play with the often more formal medium of stained glass. Her little creations would be equally at home in a cottage garden and on a formal table. I find them completely charming, and wish I could find space for all of them!
Zaycman got her start in stained glass working with her sister making large-scale pieces for residential installations in and around their hometown of Saint Petersburg. In 2017, after years of working on complicated, multi-stage installations, the artist decided she wanted to experiment with making more accessible, whimsical, small-scale pieces. Thus, her Etsy shop was born.
“I wanted to create items that people could easily incorporate in their living spaces—without an elaborate and complicated installation.”-Elena Zaycman
Her Tiffany-style glass techniques really make for remarkable small stained glass pieces that would be a wonderful addition to any home or garden.
