Welcome friends! My name is Valya Boutenko, and I enjoy nothing more than creating beautiful ceramic dishes and jewelry. I present on this site only the pieces I love enough to consider keeping them all for myself. Even though I strive for utmost beauty and quality, my art pieces have little value in and of themselves; it is what happens around the service they lend that is the real treasure. The purpose of a cup is to hold the tea, to allow the friends to forget it is there, to share and feel warm together. The purpose of earrings is to sparkle and enchant, to dangle barely out of sight and bring about the urge to dance for no apparent reason. I invite you to bring into your home such sweet reminders of goodness that inspire you and also lend a useful service.
Valya has two new projects that have been released this year. They are available to order from rawfamily.com
The 7 Desserts
Valya’s new eBook is now available for your enjoyment. The 7 Desserts is a mouthwatering step-by-step illustrated raw dessert recipe eBook.
Valya brings herself into your living room to show you how to prepare 7 of our all-time favorite green smoothies. In addition to demonstrating how easy it is to blend up exotic concoctions, Valya shares many time saving tips and answers the most frequently asked questions about making delicious green smoothies.
