Aleksey Saburov

Miniature fine carving is Aleksey Saburov's professional specialty, something for which he has a great passion. Throughout his life, a man constantly tries to capture pieces of his life story: loved ones, great moments from traveling or pursuing other worthwhile endeavors. With your camera handy, whatever strikes you most and leaves an impression – click – add it to your photo album.
Aleksey does something similar, namely create a slice of history that one can add to his or her own collection. But this is far better. The satisfaction of feeling a miniature sculpture in your own hand will last you a lot longer than any photograph. And it is especially valuable as an artisanal creation done by hand, unlike mechanized photo processing. To touch, to get a feel of it – is very real. A photograph is just a first impression of that moment.

First comes an idea which Aleksey delevops with William Henry. It is sketched out and then transferred onto metal. The best part is bas-relief done real-coin style – with embossed volume you can feel. This style is sculptural, far more time consuming, and more expensive to produce, but allows for the form to be felt and the texture be embossed.
