The idea of making this simple and natural by it’s natural aging properties was originated after looking the photos, which were made in the expedition in the rare Orthodox areas of the far Russia. I made the photos of natural and many centuries’ terms of the wood aging on the Kizhi isle, Republic of Karelia, people started to live here in 10th century, started to live with slavonic people. There are very many monuments of the wooden craft, still have them now in the good quality. Their Orthodox churches which made without any nails and any metal mountings very famous in the whole world. Uniqe climate showing the natural beauty of the wooden things, which is becoming more beautiful with years, messrs.

More photos will see in the future close blog and on the our Youtube channel.
