Enough to be creatively minded artist in ceramics, whose skillful hands create works of art in which it is difficult to find the same cups, teapots, saucers … Natalya Sots ceramics are enjoyable to look at and fun. All of her work is in earthenware clay, both terracotta and white talc earthenware. The clay gets bisque fired to around 1900 F (cone 05-06), then glaze is applied and the pieces are fired again.

Dutch master Hieronymus Bosch (about 1450-1460 – 1516) painted his “Ship of Fools” (Oil on wood. Paris, France, the Louvre) around 1490 – 1500. The plot of “Ship of Fools” recalls the medieval tradition to get rid of the crazy, putting them on the ship and sending away from the city. Meanwhile, Ship, or rather fragile boat symbolizes here pre-reformed Church, which the artist considered the seat of all vices, denying its celestial being. Not by chance, the master painted on the ship a nestled monk with a nun, and on the table next to them – Cherry (berry, symbolizing lust).
