Amazing objects come from Urij Novikov's hands. The viewers will get to know the personality of the artist. He admits that ceramics combines graphics, art, sculpture, architecture and requires a great knowledge in different areas. To create something special you need to study technology, chemistry and composition. Ceramist's teacher was Anna Aleksandrovna Lipurskaya, Malevich's wife. He considers this to be great luck. Creative work is on the first place in Urij Novikov's life. His wife Natalya understands the fact that she is not the main woman in artist's wife and the number-one woman in his life is his Muse. Natalya even doesn't enter his workshop without permission. The artist sends his first sample works to his mother's so-called «defective works» museum in St-Petersburg. She saves these works as mothers are always proud of what their children do.
