Product description: In the realm of ceramics, anything is possible. The medium of clay, a divine material out of which the first human was said to be shaped, allows any sort of form or figure to come to life. My work pushes the boundary between reality and imagination, bringing to life organisms which no zoologist or biologist has discovered before. Inspired by scientist Ernst Haeckel's illustrations of hitherto-unknown and seemingly fantastical sea creatures for audiences over a century ago, I forge ahead through the frontier of undiscovered creatures of another dimension. As humans, we have all experienced the desire to crawl into our figurative shell; my work centers around the idea that it is actually physically possible to do so. The shell is a perfect vehicle between worlds, transporting occupants safely, comfortably and in style, featuring the unique story of each traveler on its surface. Arriving in our world, my shell-dwellers slowly nudge and quietly ask us what it is like out there, if it is safe to crawl out yet or if they should spend another eternity floating in the vast space of chimera.

Natasha Dikareva was born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine and also studied in St. Petersburg, Russia during the hey-day of Soviet power. The genre of Soviet realism permeated Dikareva's young creative life. The narrow standard of approved art inadvertently pushed Dikareva to develop her own symbolic language. In 1995, an opportunity arose to move to the U.S. where Dikareva continued to pursue a vocabulary in ceramics at various studios in Minneapolis. After receiving her MFA from the University of Minnesota, Dikareva expanded her vision and embraced the notion of being an Eastern...read more
