Russian ceramic artist and sculptor Dmitry Puchkov was born in 1969 in Moscow, where he lives to this day. Member of the International Art Fund. Although he works with other ceramic materials (fire-clay, earthenware, porcelain), still, the basic material for his works the master chose terracotta. In modern sculpture terracotta particularly used as a material for sculpture of small forms, allowing to keep in the finished product the expressive conciseness and immediacy of live sketches. Working with terracotta, artists usually mold more conventional and less complicated sculptural forms, as the red clay is not porcelain, and much more fragile and all thin parts strive to break off from the main sculpture.
