Countdown to Handmade Nation: Sharon Spain Textiles

More locally designed treats from artists participating at Handmade Nation!

Countdown to Handmade Nation: Diana Fayt

First in our look at vendors participating in the upcoming Handmade Nation event is Bay Area native Diana Fayt.

You can see the attention to detail in every aspect of her work, from the freehand illustrations that adorn many of the pieces, to the lead-free glazes in rich, deep hues. If you're not able to make it to the Handmade Nation screening and sale at Mezzanine next week, not to worry.
