I have been such a huge fan of Diana Fayt's work since I stumbled across her site about a year ago. Diana's process is very labor intensive and includes approximately thirteen steps from beginning to end. The result is undeniably beautiful with intricate texture, luscious color, and detailed organic shapes. When I came across this photo of a broken plate on Cory Alckelmire's blog, and read how it had been abused by the postal service, I was equally devastated for her loss, and giddy at the thought of getting to work with one of Diana Fayt's plates. With permission from the artist, and the generosity of Corey, I was able to get my paws on it. Thank you ladies! It was even more beautiful in person.

There are a few available on my Etsy site now with $5 from each sale going to Art with a Heart, a Baltimore charity who provides interactive, hands-on art activities to disadvantaged families and children, and to people with developmental and physical challenges.
