The Master of vessels, Svetoslav Polimenov Kovachev was born in 1957, Dobrich city, Dobroudja region, North-West of Bulgaria. The means of living in the folk and art crafts in this generous part of the country has been kept until nowadays.
Kovachev is hereditary craftsman. Since 19 years old , wood plastic
and woodturning became his passion. Constantly awarded along all
he took part. In 1997 at the International Nontraditional Curing Methods
Exhibition in St. Petersburg, Russia, he has been granted with
remuneration"Clinical and Curing Effects".
The very essence of this style is the step - by - step process as follow:
1.Careful selection of the wood by the master himself [the nature habitat of the woods is of great importance].
2. The wood trunks need to be saw precisely and dried naturally in 4 - 5 years period.
3. The first treatment , boiling under low pressure and again drying.
4. The real make is going on lath with knife hand-leading at 6000 rpm, not practice by the most craftsmen because of injury risk. That gives possibility for better plasticity of the object.
5. The final procedure consists of the perfect peeling of the vessel, covering with honey wax and it is helping not only for the charming [ decorative ] appearance , but also home application . A paraffin and olive oil treatment is applied [on client's request they could be washed with the same in advance].
The very emphasis is put on walnut tree, but also other trees, used by the master - cherry tree, apricot tree, pear tree.
The process of treatment is long lasting , risky, but it is worth to
see the final result.
