Unique crafts made by blind master from Astana
Talent and creativity can pass any obstacles. According to the official website of capital akimat, the confirmation of this can be Alexander Frolov, who makes wonderful products, being blind for 47 years.
Uncle Sasha met us in a good mood for a warm conversation with his wife, making a new basket to order. Nearby lay a telephone cable of different colors. And hands did another the beauty.
It so happened that at the age of 18, Alexander Vladimirovich became a disabled person of the II group of vision. But this fact did not force to give up, and opened new amazing talents and helped to meet love after moving to Kazakhstan. They met with Zinaida Ivanovna 23 years ago, now live happily and support each other.
In the works of the master craftsman you can find a variety of boxes, flower pots, vases, bags, flowers, crafts with animals and people. All in all, uncle Sasha is such a beautiful and unusual thing since 1973. And he began his fascination with production of a belt for a shirt. There is a collection of works not only small belts, but also large, which took more than 2000 beads.
«I make products from what I come up with. Mostly beads, wire, telephone cable, thick paper, now began to use the metal base. I buy the material myself, accompanied by an assistant, or I bring friends from the city or bring people. There are even crafts from medical systems. On the bag it took me 1600 systems, and the 5-pointed flower about 50,» says Alexander Frolov.
His wife helps him in his work, suggesting and choosing colors for future works.
«Once a friend gave me a Bunny. In the evening, watching the work of her husband, jokingly said, «well, would you do a house Bunny». And before I knew it, in the evening he had already started to make a basket for a pink Bunny», – with a smile recalls his chosen one.
Finally, Alexander decided to do us the honor to whistle the famous song «Katyusha», as used to do the live performances.
