Valentina Fadeeva, a.k.a. Ceramic Tales, was born in 1987 in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. As an artist, she likes beauty to be present in various aspects of her life. She likes calm and silence. Her favourite colours are green, brown, yellow and red – colours of ground and trees. Sometimes she falls into nostalgia, she loves old houses and antiques. Of all arts, ceramics is especially close to nature, cause it works with fire and clay. That is why Valentina always uses images of nature in her art: mushrooms, leaves, flowers, birds and small forest animals. She makes her pieces to achieve harmony with nature, to find balance and feels happy when her artwork brings serenity and good feelings to others.
