I LOVE whimsical things. So when I came across this ceramic artist, Natalya Sots, on Etsy I had major art envy! I wanted a piece of her art in the worst way. But I restrained myself.....until.........I found out that some of her pieces are being featured in our booth at the upcoming NCECA (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts) show. Three of her ceramic creations arrived here at iLTC and many of us (me!!!) could not stop admiring them. Seriously, they are fabulous when you see them in a photo, but when you can hold one and see the attention to detail and the superb craftsmanship, well..............I went back on Etsy and ordered a purple cup. I love the matte finish of the purple in contrast to the high gloss of the green, black & white. And for me, anything with a dramatic pop of black and white just puts me over the edge with happiness!
