When I read about Diana Fayt on design*sponge I was immediately drawn to her beautiful vases. Diana is a talented ceramicist living and working in San Francisco. Her vases can be enjoyed with or without flowers. Diana on design*sponge: “Some things I consider when making a new vase shape is how many flowers will fit in the vase. Most people buy one bunch of flowers, not three. I want people to be able put their blooms in my vases with ease and not have to fuss too much but also to enjoy the vase without flowers as well.”
Diana has developed a process with ceramics in which she combines all of her loves; drawing, painting, printmaking and clay and refers to it as ‘as etchings in clay’. Diana is both a traveler and a lover of home. She gleans inspiration from nature, the mundane and life’s stories. Her ceramic pieces are often narrative with marks of time, events and images seen and experienced and then drawn into the surface of her clay platters bowls and vases. By doing this she hopes to leave a permanent mark that expresses her vision of what she experiences in the world around her.
Diana currently exhibits her work in galleries and fine boutiques throughout the United States, Japan, Australia and Europe. You can purchase her gorgeous ceramic objects from her Etsy shop
