The works of Nastassia Aleinikava is spread out between a decent jewel of a great quality and unseen shapes and styles of glasses that can be considered unconventional. In her work, she takes inspiration from her homeland in Belarus as well as from natural details or cultural heritage that have been formed for ages and are still relevant.
Her journey went through K.O.V. studio (headed by Eva Eisler) at UMPRUM in Prague, several nominations for Czech Grand Design Award (in 2008, 2011, 2013 and 2014) to authorial jewels in collections of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague and private collections. What makes her works so important is also the usage of materials. Glasses by Aleinikava are remarkable for being fully handmade from material of a high quality – Italian cellulose acetate by Mazzucchelli.
