In the art of ceramics artist primarily interested in genre. Works Strelnikova, usually of large dimensions, the figures given in human growth and always appear in some action. This is mainly scenes from everyday life, which are played with humor and subtle irony. The author, as if poking fun at the characters, each of them finds and "talking" detail "Fisherman" shoes in exaggerated waders, graceful vypolaskivat Laundry "Laundress" dresses up in a festive blouse and skirt, the "Flower girl" in elegant ankle boots with dresses in an apron and is crowned by an elegant hat. Particularly attracted the attention of the figure "Girl" and "Young captain."
