Yaro Zabavskiy

Yaro Zabavskiy

Born: 1990

Hometown: Moscow

Based in: Dilijan, Armenia

Yaro Zabavskiy was born in Moscow, Russia. He attended United World College in Wales, UK and went on to study Studio Arts at Earlham College, IN, USA, where he has discovered a passion for ceramics and analogue photography.

His body of work contains ceramic vessels and sculptures with textures that reference the beautiful mountainous landscapes of Armenia. The solidity of rock formations and the ephemerality of the seasons imbue his practice. The techniques he uses encourage the development of various textures on the surface of his pieces. Yaro enjoys both throwing on the wheel and hand building and often uses combinations of several making methods.

He believes that tactile relationship with the objects that surround us is particularly important in the age of scrolling and swiping. As an artist he enjoys working with his hands and finds satisfaction in the ability to create works that people want to pick up and touch.

IconInspires

What inspires you?

I am very much inspired by the aesthetics of Japanese ceramics which emphasizes the beauty of accidents and in which the consciousness of the artist is not so visible. As a ceramicist I reflect on the beauty of my surroundings created through the forces of nature.
