Welcome to Vintage Porcelain Art! I am an award winning porcelain artist with over 20 years experience. I specialize in the vintage "lost" art of china painting in the style of the old victorian masters as well as in the romantic, shabby and cottage chic style. Thank you for letting me share my art with you!
This is my first Pink Saturday! YAY! I went through some pictures of some of my previous pieces that have gone to their new homes. Pink roses are my favorite thing to paint so it was difficult to decide which pictures to share!
Todays party is brought to you by the letters "I" "J" & "K"!
"I" is for Inspiration!
There are sooooo many things that inspire me, my friends blogs, nature, other artists and all things vintage or victorian just to name a few.
I keep a lot if materials on hand to gain inspiration and knowledge of a subject I would like to paint.
LOVE my Picard China book as well as "China Decorator" and "China Painter" magazines.
Vintage china painters catalogs for outlines for painters to use to guide them in decorating their china. A LOT of great ideas and vintage designs in these!
An inside peek at the catalogs...
My vintage postcards! O LOVE these! I keep them in a large binder to keep them preserved but accessable to look at.
"J" is for jewlrey! Here are a few Brooches I've recently finished. If you scroll down to my post earlier this week you can see some other examples of jewlrey that I've been working on.
"K" is for Kiln! These are my beloved kilns! Without these there can not be any of our favorite porcelain pieces that we love so much! Not too pretty to look at, I know, but a very necessary uglyness!
And one more "K" ! "Kids Room!
Since the kilns weren't too pretty, here is
a picture of the Princess mural I painted for my niece Ali in "Her Magesty's" room.
Thank you Martha and Terri for hosting Teacup Tuesday! I think it is going to be my favorite day! This particular cup and saucer is listed for sale in my eBay store. I'm sorry I'm only posting one today, but I'm out of town and not on my home PC. I promise to share more next week!

The decoration of china is a peculiarly interesting art, because by this means articles that are both beautiful and useful are produced, and also in that the mineral decoration, once fixed by fire, is fadeless and invulnerable to the ravages of time as long as the object upon which it is applied endures.

In conclusion, look upon this art not altogether as "a craze", or as a pastime - it is something nobler.

Tried by Fire
My name is Amy Enright and I am a mother, wife and an artist. I live in Southern California with my best friend and husband,Trevor and my 13 year old daughter, Leah. I've loved to draw an paint as long as I can remember. My mom and other family members recognized and encouraged my interest in art. I have 23 years experience in china painting. The fundamentals of art I learned during my study of china painting. While china painting is my foundation and my passion, I enjoy other mediums including face and body painting, mural painting and painting on canvas.
Thank you for allowing me to share my art with you!
