For over 40 years I have designed and painted ceramics. I have been a china painting teacher since 1994. Porcelain clay is my favorite and main focus. Beginning with clay, I am able to participate in the total creation of an original piece. Whether I am designing jewelry or tile murals or dust-catching decorative pieces or crosses, my porcelain “canvases” are decorated with over-glaze oil colors and gold in designs that reflect the beauty of God’s amazing creation. Each piece is kiln-fired a minimum of three to ten times at temperatures ranging between 1400 and 2300 degrees.
