My devotion to my creativity and the satisfaction I derive from the results help me overcome any difficulties along the way.

"I opened my family workshop in 1992 in Tashkent. Initially, the studio specialized mainly in the creation of... hand-crafted souvenirs. Through a lot of creative research and experimentation, I uncovered a unique technique of hand-painting ceramics. This technique involved painting with needles on wet clay, followed by firing. It allowed for the creation of elegant and voluminous patterns.

"Our creativity is heavily influenced by the traditional ceramics of Uzbekistan. Our designs incorporate elements from national ikat fabrics, ancient ornaments, and colors. Our main material is locally sourced clay, which we process ourselves. What sets our products apart is the unique painting technique that allows for intricate surface details, which achieves a sense of lightness and delicacy in our creations.

"In 1997, I started participating in international exhibitions in America and Europe. It was during this time that I came up with the idea of creating Christmas decorations from ceramics with the unique hand-painting technique. These ornaments were well-received at exhibitions and fairs, and gradually, the family workshop grew into a ceramics studio.

"Over the past 30 years, we have been able to create jobs and provide employment opportunities. Our presence has also had a positive impact on the souvenir-making industry in tourist cities of Uzbekistan, as we introduced new techniques into our traditional ceramic art. In our workshop, we often have art students and interns learning the secrets of ceramic art. Additionally, we provide free masterclasses for children.

"I grew up in a large and loving family and I had a happy childhood. From the age of 16, I was already involved in my own business. Traveling around the world and living in different countries helped me find myself. I am married with two children, and I hope that they will continue my work in the future.

"My devotion to my creativity and the satisfaction I derive from the results help me overcome any difficulties along the way. Believe in yourself and in what you do."
