About the Artist

Born in the Ukraine and now based in Fort Lee, New Jersey, Vladimir Kanvesky first began a career as an architect before immigrating to the United States in 1989. His foray into porcelain started with a tableware project for designer Howard Slatkin, producing a melon in the style of an 18th-century porcelain tureen. Fascinated by botany since childhood, Kanevsky swiftly transitioned to creating flowers in this new medium. “I like flowers because they have a logical structure to them,” he explained, “It’s like architecture.” Each flower sculpture is fashioned by hand—Kanevsky shapes, paints, fires, and assembles each piece, petal by petal.
