Floral Inspired Work from Diana Fayt


If the sun shining and plants budding didn’t tip you off to the blossoming of spring, these new pieces from ceramicist Diana Fayt should do the trick. Doesn’t that chartreuse glaze capture the color of new growth peaking up from the earth perfectly? And those happy red-orange poppies remind me of a stroll outside San Francisco’s Conservatory of Flowers on a warm day – heaven.

Fayt’s new work is part of Gump’s upcoming exhibit entitled “Floral Inspired: Celebrating the Relationship Between Design and Nature”, which opens April 22nd. Other participating artists include Whitney Smith and Rae Dunn, two more Bay Area ceramicists whose work I adore, so it’s definitely a show to see.

If you’re not in or around the Bay this spring, no worry–Fayt’s work can be found online at One Black Bird and at stores throughout the state.
