I've been a long time fan of the work of Diana Fayt! She draws and paints wonderful botanicals and birds onto hand-thrown stoneware clay! Most of my other dishes are antique, but there is something wonderfully whimsical and fun about her work that I just love ~ and of course, her craft skills shine through! I bought my first couple of plates from Art Stream in New Hampshire. Ironically Diana is based here in the Bay Area! One of these days I plan on going to her studio sale, but for now I find her work on Esty. Today, they hang in a cozy little area in my kitchen, but sooner or later, I'll have to move this little growing collection to a new wall!
