Porcelain Unlimited is my business name and also it is perfect to describe what I do. The pieces that are available to be creative on are unlimited. They range from cups and saucers to tiles that can be painted with portraits, scenes, florals to be framed and hung on your walls. Sinks and water tanks that can be painted and used to decorate your bathrooms. Wall tiles can be painted and used to decorate any wall in any room with any design and colors you would personally prefer.
When the porcelain pieces are fired (1400 degrees or hotter), the paint moves under the glaze. This makes the porcelain completely washable and so easy to maintain for an indefinite period of time.
Another media that excites me is to paint on glass. Painting and firing is the same with the exception that the firing is cooler (1100 degrees). When the pieces are completed they have a wonderful look of elegance and quality.
Painting takes me many places to teach including schools and painters homes.
I have been the Director of the PPAA Cazenovia, New York Seminar for the past 10 years. I am presently serving on the International Porcelain Artists and Teachers (IPAT) Board of Directors.
I have been a Willoughby Distributor since 1991 and I sell their complete line of paints and supplies, including German and French brushes to the china painter. Willoughby paints have been in business for many years and once you purchase a Willoughby color, 5 years later you can purchase the same color. I also have a new line of wonderful European Lusters that can be used on porcelain and glass.
Glass painting is another phase. I do love to paint on Polish Glass because it gives the finished piece a beautiful quality appearance.
Please go to the Gallery where you will see the more of my experience. Commissioned portraits, gifts, sinks and tile murals for the home and business are some of my endeavors. I always use the exact products that I sell.
