10 Russian Khokhloma: Red and Black on Gold

Russian Khokhloma: Red and Black on Gold

Posted on November 22, 2014 by team


Every Russian knows what khokhloma is. It's an old Russian handicraft having its own distinctive features: wooden utensils and furniture are painted green, black and red on gold. Maybe they are not very functional, but they definitely carry some magic. The city called Semenov (Nizhny Novgorod region) where, Russian matryoshka dolls are also made, considers itself to be the place where "Khokhloma" was born. Other cities may argue, but Semenov still has workshops for creating miracles of khokhloma.

Russian blogger Yaroslav took the opportunity to visit one of them and take these interesting pictures.

    Just masterful work. What a shame that more of it isn’t seen outside websites such as these. I admire craftspeople who can do such marvelous pieces…I hope it doesn’t become a lost art either.
