For almost 50 years she worked in creative partnership with D.N. Shushkanov in various genres and materials of decorative art but always preferred the glass. Their achievements in art glass were based on the combination of the creative search of beauty and plastic harmony of the surrounding world of objects, strife for improvisation and constant experiments in the technique of free-blown colored glass. Her art works are in museum collections in Russia and other countries.
