Porcelain Folk Patterns by Alexey Vorobievsky is a surprisingly harmonious world of bright, festive, as a rule, red-blue-gold paintings adorning porcelain. Referring to the origins of folk art, the artist created emotionally figurative works, juicy in color, inspired by fairy tales, epics, fairground booths with invariable carousel and buffoons, folk theater and its heroes. Fabulous birds with golden feathers, golden-maned horses, fantastic flowers, intricate ornament pattern, reminiscent of the painting of an old spinning wheel or embroidery of a sundress - all this can vary by the artist endlessly. The high aesthetic potential of the cultural and everyday life of Russia are reflected in these works. The author of this pattern was awarded by a gold medal at the World Exhibition in Brussels in 1958. The works are kept in the collections of the State Hermitage, the International Ceramics Center in Faenza (Italy) and other major cultural treasures.

The master's works are distinguished by their individual style, elegance of miniature painting, light naivety of the image, harmony of color, pattern and form. Vorobyevsky's work is characterized by an appeal to fantastic and fairy-tale plots, which are based on the motives of folk art. Often in his works you can see plots with schematically depicted figures of people, unearthly flowers, trees, buildings and crystal bridges.
