This Artist Creates Detailed Glass And Ceramic Artwork Inspired By Nature

According to an artist Miss Wondersmith: “Wouldn’t it be amazing to stumble on a fairytale picnic in the woods and be invited to join? Have you ever wanted to go on a *real* treasure hunt for buried treasure hidden by codes and clues? Those examples may sound fantastical, but as Miss Wondersmith, it is my goal to make them a reality!”

“A few years ago, I threw a surprise party for strangers. I hid invitations in the woods written on purple ferns, I created artistic vessels to hold the food, and I foraged the ingredients myself. It was a magical experience, and it filled my heart in a way it had never been filled before. That experience changed my life.”

“For several years now, I have been working as Miss Wondersmith, hosting more magical events that are always free to my guests! I’m supported by generous patrons, who want to help and believe in what I am doing (and get some bonus treats as thanks, of course.) I like to create my artwork to accompany each event, and, until now, I have been selling them to supplement my income.”

“But lately, I have been thinking about what “success” means to me. All I want in life is to be able to live comfortably and do what I love, which is making the world a more wonder-filled place! This is why I set a goal for myself on my patreon page. As soon as I’m able to earn enough every month to cover my supplies, materials, and medical costs (I have several chronic illnesses), I’ll be able to afford to give away my beautiful artwork! I’m so excited to be able to offer my patrons clues or hints, or host surprise competitions, or share my art with a group of people in need of comfort (like the series of chalices I made for survivors of the Camp Fire in CA last year, glazed with the ashes of their lost homes.)”

“Why give it all away? Because I want to believe in a world where buried treasure and secret clues exist, and the best way to make that happen is to make them myself. Because I want my artwork to be accessible to people of all social classes, not just the wealthy, and I don’t like thinking of my creativity as a transaction. Because I want the creations that I put my heart and soul into to bring wonder into someone else’s life. Because several brushes with death have made me appreciate the magic of this world and given me a new perspective about why I fought to stay alive. Because I am Miss Wondersmith, and spreading wonder is my life’s purpose.”

“Here are some examples of my artwork so you can see my style! Some of these pieces have been sold or gifted. Still, there are plenty more hiding away just waiting to become buried treasure (not to mention the projects I am working on now, as well!)”

“If you would like to learn more about me and what I do, please visit my Patreon or my thewondersmith homepage. And don’t forget: buried treasure totally exists. I know, because I’m putting it there. ”
