While dank memes, viral cat videos, and social media are great and all, one of the more remarkable things to come out of the internet is how it became the space for people to establish themselves as artists and to make a living out of it. Websites like Redbubble and Etsy offer specialized platforms for painters, graphic designers, and craftspeople all over the world to communicate and distribute their creations regardless of shape, form, or caliber. In turn, the internet has become the definitive go-to place for everything artistic and expressive, beginning with clothing and footwear to house decor and similar paraphernalia.

Vita of Vitraaze is a glass painter from Kyiv, Ukraine who decorates teapots, mugs, plates, and various other glassware using heat-set paint. Vita’s Etsy page features over 500 unique items, all with her highly colorful and intricate stained glass designs. Check out some of her work below and let us know what’s your favorite!

"I've been fond of painting since childhood," Vita told Bored Panda. "I've never studied how to paint and simply did it for fun with my sister. When I was a student, I read an article about glass painting and decided to try it out. I took a glass bottle and bought special paint for glass in the nearest shop. I then created a very simple design on the bottle, it wasn't nice at all."

However, Vita didn't let it discourage her. On the contrary. "I decided to try and perfect it," she said. "I am crazy about doing everything as well as possible and fell in love with glass painting as I was doing my best to improve. Now, I've been at it for 6 years and still love it very much."

The artist usually finds inspiration in nature. "I adore how motifs of the natural world look on tableware and other pieces of decor. It's a classic."
