Mia Waisman

I felt the world around me. My inspiration comes from childhood memories growing up in the Soviet Russia, and now my life in Maine. The often symbolic- elements of the functional objects I create present a spectrum of color and texture perspective, and combine both, the aesthetics of artistic presentation and manual craft skill. I want people to see beauty in ordinary functional objects that they use and see in everyday life. These pieces hold memories and tell stories connecting past and present.
