Perhaps because applied art mostly associated with "hand-made articles'', which are of good quality, but often do not have a special practical and artistic value.

Applied art has existed since an early stage of development of human society and for many centuries it has been an important, and for a number of tribes and nationalities the main field of artistic creation. An exceptional richness of content, attention to aesthetics of material, and a rational construction of a form, emphasized by decor are characteristics of ancient works of arts and crafts. Such objects, but made by modern masters, are exactly what we collect in our gallery, and among them there are carvings (in wood or bone), small objects (metal or stone), collages (made of any material), stained glass and other author's art objects, such as modern hand-made masks, wooden installations, self-propelled objects, and much more. The main criteria of choice are a uniqueness, originality and the highest quality of each work. Read more
