This Week’s Theme: Plates
Texas fine artist Yevgenia Davidoff hand-painted a little piece of nature onto this glass dessert plate. While I tend to favor symmetry, I actually love the very random and natural (asymmetrical) look of Yevgenia’s design. To me it looks like the glass blades are dancing on the plate.
About this plate she states:
This is a hand painted glass desert plate featuring Grass Fields design with gold metallic accents. The drawing is delicate and dynamic resembling a soft summer breeze tickling the tall strands of grass. The painting is done in a wide range of greens and metallics for maximum dimension with impeccable attention to detail.
I am originally from Moscow, Russia and lived in NYC for 22 years. For about 14 of those years, I worked in web and graphic design field in the corporate world. This put my fine art making on the back burner. But, I had a short stint of living and working in New England, which awakened something in me. I started sketching nature (something I hadn’t done before).
Until then, I was a full-fledged city girl, obsessed with architecture, cityscapes and straight lines. When I suddenly found myself enjoying all this natural beauty I translated the fascinating botanical wonders onto functional objects for my family and friends to enjoy.

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” ~ Eleonora Duse
