About the Artist | Lois White
Turning a hobby into a fine business after teaching organ for 25 years, Lois is well known in both music and art fields. Many of her art projects are enjoyed in public venues, including a 14 foot mural of the world in the Santa Paula City Park. Hundreds of homes feature her tile work and several gift shops feature her creations. She teaches several classes each week in her state-of-the-art studio.
A member of International Porcelain Artists, World Organization of China Painters, Sea Shore Porcelain Club and Santa Barbara Porcelain Artists, her time is filled with sharing ideas and projects. Many of her designs are reproduced by a large manufacturer of china transfers and have been used by fine chinaware companies. Her artwork has appeared in several international porcelain periodicals and local newspapers.
Still very active in her church, her talents bring joy to many who love organ music as well as those who love fine china. A creative mind always has many more projects in the " I'll get to that soon" stage than time permits. Her wish is that her works of art will be treasured and kept as an heirloom for years to come.
About the Product
The designs are all hand-painted by Lois and then reproduced as a transfer, which is then fired into the piece of porcelain. Then each piece is hand painted and touched up to enhance its beauty individually to the item. Even though many of her designs are sold world-wide and used by other companies, only those hand decorated by Lois can have her seal and logo on the bottom of each piece she has personally done.
One of her designs, the Dark Pansy, has been used by the “ National Presidents Wives Collector Plate Series”. Lois’s design was chosen to represent Frances Cleveland’s favorite flower—the pansy.
Many pieces are trimmed with gold, hand applied and fired in on the last fire. Pieces can be done without the gold trim if so ordered and they can then be used in a microwave. All ware is fired to be dishwasher safe, but many prefer to treat their pieces as they would a treasured heirloom and wash by hand.
Occasionally there will be offered original works of art by Lois, so watch the web for these, as they are a one-of-a-kind treasure for you to own.
Each item is hand decorated, so slight variations from the sample photo sheet may occur.
