Ludmilla Kosmina was born in the Ukraine and has lived in Scotland since 1990. Ludmilla works full time as a technical consultant but she enjoys nothing better than spending her free time creating unique ceramic sculptures in her own studio which she set up in 2003.
Ludmilla's figurative sculptures depict people, often dressed in tartan kilts, dancing or playing musical instruments. They have a stylaised form, humorous flair and whimsical personality. Ludmilla says her inspiration comes from observing life around her, "I only make figures of happy people enjoying themselves! Human nature is immensely interesting to me and I want to express it all in my sculptures. I do not seek anatomical perfection, preferring instead a stylised technique that I feel retains the expression of human behaviour."
Each piece is hand-made using earth-stone clay, glazed and fired in electric kiln up to four times, firing temperature is up to 1250ºC.
Ludmilla exhibs widely and her work is held in numerous private collections, we are pleased to bring her delightful work to an Edinburgh audience.
