Decorative painting have entered the culture of Ukrainian people with a vivid variety of colors. Petrikov painting - decorative and ornamental painting, formed in Dnipropetrovsk in the late XIX-XX centuries. The name comes from the village Petrikovka.
Petrikovka historically developed as a wall painting and decoration of everyday items: dower chest, stove, table and benches. Today, its elements are widely used in the painting on wooden objects: spoons, plates, kitchen spatulas, cutting boards etc., book illustrations, decorating premises, and in many other areas.
Petrikov ornament has its roots in the ancient traditional ornamentation, which is widely used in the home of the Cossacks, who adorned their housing, utensils and weapons. Tradition of painting handed down from generation to generation and over time more and more improved.
For modern Petrikov painting floral design is typical. It is based on careful study of real forms of local flora. Widely used motifs of flowers: asters, dahlias, roses, cornflowers and viburnum berries, grapes and strawberries, viburnum, currants, periwinkles and other. More recently, artists began to add new images: butterflies, roosters, birds, fire-birds with lush beautiful tails.
Petrikov ornamentalist have incredibly accurate eye and well coordinated hand movements - all masters paint without making drafts, without using any measuring instrument. The work is conducted using a thin brush. In addition to brushes, Petrikov masters use the flower stalk, wood chips, berries and even actual flowers.
Crystal - 24% lead oxide
The company's products UkrKristal - is hand-made production and maintenance of 24% lead oxide, which corresponds to the domestic GOST and confirmed by the certificate of quality.
Crystal - a special type of glass that contains a significant amount of lead oxide, which increases the refractive index of the glass (with a jeweler's point of view of the "play of color", "fire"). The addition of lead oxide also increases the plastic properties of the glass and, therefore, its ability to process - cutting, carving, etc. Cut crystal, cut like a precious stone, crystal glass can fully express properties due to a high index of refraction and dispersion.
How do you know that we really crystal products, and not a cheap fake?
Glass has the right to bear the proud name of "crystal", if it has a 6 to 36% lead oxide.
The world standard is 24%.
Our country has a national standard GOST 24315 - 80: if the glass contains at least 10% lead oxide, barium, zinc, it is crystal glass and if lead oxide content of 18 to 24%, then we malosvintsovy crystal, but if the oxide lead of 24 to 30%, then we are dealing with an expensive lead crystal, the presence of more than 30% lead oxide is characteristic for the most expensive vysokosvintsovogo crystal.
In Europe adopted its standards regarding the composition of crystal mass. When buying a European crystal or crystal glass should "recognize" the inscription on the box: the word "Crystalline» (Crystalline) says about the content of 1-15% lead oxide, "Crystal» (Crystal) - 16-23%,«lead crystal» (Full Lead Crystal) - 24 to 30%.
