American artist Natalya Sots this is a real fairy who is able to bring to life inanimate objects, such as ordinary kitchen utensils. And for this she does not need to possess magical powers at all or to get into the cartoon "Beauty and the Beast", where cups, teapots and saucers could run, sing, talk and dance. It is enough to be a creative-minded ceramic artist so that real works of art come out of your hands, in which it is difficult to recognize the same cups, teapots, saucers … Ceramics itself is a very warm and malleable material, it is not difficult to make friends with it if you know what to expect how from the "raw" material and from the finished product. So, to approach the creation of art utensils, just like any other creation made of ceramics, one should "draw" in the head the finished product that you want to get, and try to get as close as possible to this imaginary ideal. And then everything will surely work out, and even better than you expect.
In Natalya's hands, cups and teapots, milk jugs and oil cans transform into funny little men, gnomes with funny shoes, birds with a long curved beak, or even completely unknown, but very nice, cool creatures. You just want to take them in your hands, stroke the warm polished sides, lovingly painted by the author, and then fill them with a fragrant hot drink. After all, it is for this that the artist creates them, despite the fact that her works are more like beautiful souvenirs.
By the way, about souvenirs: Natalya also makes such ceramic products that will serve exclusively as a decoration for the room - and no drinks inside. Mice and bears, hares and seals, animals and birds, painted decorative dishes on the wall and original vases - all this can be found on her Etsy profile.
