Natalya Sevastyanova is a Los Angeles-based contemporary ceramic artist. She grew up in the expansive nature of the Ural Mountains, Russia. This has continually influenced her self-expression from the very beginning when Natalya started out as a muralist and animator. She received a M.F.A. in Architecture Design from the Academy of Architecture and Arts, Yekaterinburg, Russia. After a several year-long stay in these fields, she had the strong inclination towards working with a tactile medium. Since 2013 clay has been her channel to bring the essence of nature’s wildness into client’s homes. Natalya’s body of work has graduated from pottery tableware to teapot ceremony sets and is currently focused on wall sculpture installations. Her pieces have been sold globally and exhibited at art gallery shows across Los Angeles under the title Seva Ceramics. At the present time, she leads private masterclasses about Raku firing techniques.
