About the Artist

First I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Elaine. I have started a little business called Just 4 Fun Ceramics. That's what it is -  FUN!!

I didn't start doing ceramics. First I started drawing Disney characters. When I was 9, I sent some work in. They said it was very good and to contact them when I was older. Things happen in life and everything goes in a different direction.  But thats ok.

 What I enjoy is small detail work. I had many hospital stays when I was young and MANY MANY model everythings, planes, trains ,cars. You name it my Mom got it for me to put together. As I got older I tried my hand at drawing people (well you see how well that went). So a friend gave me some of those rag shop ceramic santas, pumpkins ,ornaments. I did a couple of them. When they were done she bought them back from me!!.  So needless to say, ceramics is my favorite medium.  And as I've been disabled for almost 2 yrs now, it keeps me moving too.

I have one employee,  my 1 yr old granddaughter Fallon, she is my Quality Control Inspector. Her job is simple she grabs a pin and throws it to see if it will break!! Well so far she's done her job well.

So now to what I do.

Let me ask you a question...when you see an ice cube tray with the little squares what do you think? Maybe, oh how cute.  Well I see little squares of plaster to drill a hole in and paint a letter on it. Oh and the little trays you would use to make bacon in the microwave I make the bases of my small desk plaque.
Here's another one on my website

you will see a birthday plaque. The base of it is made from,are you ready...the bottom of a fast food salad container. Now the bigger desk plaque on my site, the base is made from the center of one of the appetizer platters you buy at the supermarket.

I sell my pins, plaques and magnets through my website

and make up pieces to order, especially the  birthday plaques and have just finished a series of pins for our local baseball stadium,

 Last but nowhere near least I would like to thank Rose and Jenny for this fun and great opportunity to show my things. Please enjoy and feel free to visit my site and comment on my pictures.
Thanks again

Hi Elaine,

This exhibition is great fun! And your plaques are a work of art.  Rose is right -you must have tremendous patience. I loved reading your descriptions of how you find and make your moulds!  I have strated to look at all containers with new yes now!

 And  your do-it-yourself-option is great news for people.  It will certainly be a good idea for harrassed mothers during the vacations, to keep their kids occupied productively!

I am not suprised that you receive so many personalised orders!

To your succcess!
