The Gift Projects online showroom welcomes you to a world of original artistic presents that you would be proud to give... but may rather want to keep for yourself.

Gift Projects features exquisite designer porcelain items — outstanding decorative objects for the home and pieces for everyday use —made by such famous Russian artistic personalities as Andrey Makarevich, Evgeny Grishkovets and others. Offers include the limited edition Five o’Cat porcelain tea set by Andrey Makarevich, which is almost sold out. Five o’Cat is remarkable for Makarevich’s exceptional award-winning graphic art and decoration using real gold. Hurry and get yourself this unique artwork for your daily tea party!

Our newest arrival is a porcelain collection made in collaboration with the renowned artists Yuri Norstein and Francesca Yarbusova, the authors of the legendary “Hedgehog in the Fog” cartoon. The marvelous porcelain collection consists of tea and coffee sets, decorative plates and other pieces, and features recognizable shots from the award-winning cartoon. What an amazing gift idea for creating an atmosphere of warmth and coziness! 

An unconventional approach and subtle local flavor are evident in the porcelain tea sets and mugs, decorative plates and meticulously made figurines created by Russian artists G.A.V. Traugot, Mikhail Shemyakin, Alexander Florensky and Vasily Golubev.

Incredibly realistic and absolutely stunning biscuit porcelain and bronze figurines are made by Russian sculptors Anatoly Danilov and Galina Belash, who regularly take part in the most challenging and ambitious artistic projects run by the Imperial Porcelain Manufactory — including the reconstruction of artworks from the collection of the State Hermitage Museum. The work of Danilov and Belash — no matter whether it be a miniature sphinx cat, a life-size sparrow, sculptures of thoroughbred horses or a retro-style swimmer figurine — always amaze anyone who sees them with the authors' attention to the smallest details.

The famous artist Ivan Tarasuk presents selected artworks that include paintings, bronze and ceramic figurines and porcelain items. The artist’s style is recognizable and unique, so explore and enjoy the collection!
