About Ekaterina Rezanova

I was born and live in this city, I breathe its moist air, cursing its climate and feeling immensely proud of the fact that I'm from St. Petersburg.

    He was there, but I am not sure that you could be able to meet him. If you are not a president of the Saras Corporation, of course

    I’m searching for artists in St. Petersburg area who can create glass ornaments (e.g humming bird, butterfly and other animals). Has anybody an idea how to get in contact with them. Thanks a lot in advance for helpful comments, Revilos.
