New Artist I have found!!!

One of the great things I love about Etsy is that you can see some of the most beautiful artists in the world. It's kinda like going through the Smithsonian and being able to meet and find out all about the artists, except you can purchase them!!! There are a lot of artist on Etsy so I tend to use keywords to help sort them out and since I am a member of The
designstyleguide team I thought I would use that. It was through this I found Kathyart!! She has some of the most beautiful pottery
I have seen.

She sells her home decor items on Etsy so please do check out her store.

She also has a portfolio on The Design Style Guide that lists one of my favorite vases. But I would have to say that this is my most favorites. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16180914. I could truly see this sitting in my living room.

Here is a little bit about Kathyart, My name is Kathy, and I have loved arts and crafts all my life. As my five children have grown, I found time to pursue my love of pottery and jewelry. Each piece I make is unique and one of a kind. My joy comes when others like it just as much as I!

Here is a little bit about the process she uses,

Horsehair pottery is created by the piece being removed during the heating process and horsehair carefully added. The horsehair burns into the piece leaving beautiful one-of-a-kind squiggles, creating a beautiful one-of-a-kind piece of pottery. The piece is then sprayed with a finish for protection.

These are truly unique items that anyone would be proud to have as a part of their decor.

Please visit Kathy and tell her I said "HI"..
