The Everyday as Art continued

I the plate image first on the guest blog last week on Design*Sponge. The plates are right up my alley--going along with an interest in creatively displaying our objects of daily use as art. The source for the images is Living Etc.

Vika Mitrichenka

ceramics vika
Vika Mitrichenka moved to The Netherlands from Minsk on a tourist visa. While still at school in Minsk, Vika was inspired by Holland’s Golden Age, particularly the painters of the time, such as Johannes Vermeer and Pieter Hoogh. Other than knowing that she recently graduated from a very prestigious program in the Netherlands, I have been unable to find much information about her or her process. It appears that she frankensteins cast pieces together and then decorates them traditionally.
