Diana Fayt was born in Los Angeles, California in 1964 and has lived in northern California for most of her life. In 1983-84 she spent a year living with family in Budapest, Hungary and when returning began her journey towards her career as an artist. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Ceramics and Printmaking from the College of Arts (and Crafts) in 1992. In 1994 she 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.” She has also dabbled in ceramic design and created a line of tabletop ceramic ware in 1999 and most recently has ventured into graphics and illustration.
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 throughout the United States, Japan, Austrailia and Europe.
