"My art is concentrated on women, world and feelings" says Elisaveta. "It is very emotional, delicate, but at the same time it is much spontaneous. Through shapes and lines I explore inner self, our world, Universe connections and interactions. My favourite medium are clay, oil on canvas, ink and paper."

Elisaveta Sivas: Creations of Love

Amy Fulton:

Hello Elisaveta, thanks so much for this amazing opportunity to allow us a sneak-peak into the mind and heart behind your lovely artwork. You are by far, one of my most favorite artists and I absolutely adore your work, as it is so sweet and delicate. What made you first realize you wanted to pursue a career in art?

Elisaveta Sivas:

It was my mother who realized that I loved to create. I was drawing all day long from a small age, so she took me to a kid’s ceramic studio starting at the age of 3.

Amy Fulton:

Does your family carry the same artistic talents?

Elisaveta Sivas:

My family has talents, but in other fields, like dance, medicine and engineering.

Amy Fulton:

How has your practice changed over time?

Elisaveta Sivas:

It is growing together with me, taking new dimensions, new characters, subjects and style appearance.

Amy Fulton:

What themes do you pursue?

Elisaveta Sivas:

Female feelings and world, energies and love, freedom, kindness and grace, birds, animals and in particular horses.

Amy Fulton:

Do you have any other interests or talents you would like to share with us?

Elisaveta Sivas:

I love too many things. I am a very curious person. I love to try new materials. I love making fashion and theatre costumes. I have created a collection of silk retro style 1920’s women dresses. I would love to collaborate with the theatre or fashion industry one day. Right now I am writing a children’s fairy tale which I am going to illustrate together with an American artist friend of mine. I love making a garden and I am dreaming of building my own cob house one day!

Amy Fulton:

Your fashions and ceramics are incredible. Now speaking of a "cob house" what exactly is that?

Elisaveta Sivas:

Cob is a natural material. "Cob is a natural building material made from subsoil, water, some kind of fibrous organic material (typically straw), and sometimes lime. The contents of subsoil naturally varies and if it does not contain the right mixture it can be modified with sand or clay." (Wikipedia)

The house is ecological. It is pleasant to stay in it and good for the health as all the materials are natural and breathing. It is good for the nature as it makes economy of natural resources. It is hot in winter and fresh in summer, so less heating is needed. The round form is more natural shape. And one can personalize this house and make it according to her or his needs. The sculpting process sounds very attractive to me as it is very close to my works in ceramic sculpture. And the cost is very little! Some people managed to build such a house with only 5000 USD!

Cob building was traditional building in UK and in some other countries. If you want to read more about cob building, there is an amazing book. Read more here.

Amy Fulton:

What jobs have you done other than being an artist?

Elisaveta Sivas:

I used to work as a researcher at the University. I used to conduct research in Greek dialects and sociolinguistics.

Amy Fulton:

That sounds facinating... What do you dislike about the art world?

Elisaveta Sivas:

I am sad that many beautiful and amazing artists I see on Etsy and other sites are not found, not promoted enough and not appreciated enough.

Amy Fulton:

I completely agree with you. Maybe we can change that a bit by taking the time to spotlight these special people to bring attention to their gorgeous work. What do you like in particular about your work?

Elisaveta Sivas:

I like when my work resonates in people’s hearts and souls and when it makes somebody happy.

Amy Fulton:

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

Elisaveta Sivas:

Fear is a bad motor. This was wise advice from a French artist.

Amy Fulton:

Awesome advice. In closing I would like to say that I have found Elisaveta Sivas to be an incredibly lovely and charming individual. I first met her on Etsy, as we both have shops there and we would occasionally work together on teams to promote each other’s work. Her positive energy and beautiful demeanor equally reflect through her feminine creations, of which I like to call, Creations of Love. Thank you, Elisaveta, for sharing a part of you with us.
