Inspiration - Doily street art

Through the wonderful world of friends on Facebook talking about interesting things, I've just found a website all about an art festival that has been happening in the Italian town of Grottaglie. It's called the Fame Festival. which is doubly interesting as a title as fame in Italian means hungry, so it adds a double meaning to the English version. It's a group of international artists who work in ceramics, printmaking and installations and who translate their work into street art around the town. It's not all to my taste - but the world would be a very boring place if we all liked the same thing.

This post here is about the work by a Polish artists called NeSpoon. She has created some beautiful ceramic doilies and also used doily stencils around the town.
