Artist: Elaine Reed (Smithsonian List of Renowned 20th C. Artists) Porcelain and Oil FiguresArtist: Elaine Reed (Smithsonian List of Renowned 20th C. Artists) Porcelain and Oil Figures

Elaine Reed's stoneware figures are hand-rubbed with oil paints. They are fired once and Elaine "invented" the process of hand rubbing her pieces with oil paint. Each figure measures about 9".

Elaine studied fine art at University of Miami (1945-1946), Art Institute of Chicago (1968) and world renowned North Carolina Penland School of Crafts from 1967 thru 1973. Her work is collected extensively by national and international art galleries and museums, and private collectors. She is a pioneer of her work's unique style and technique of applying oil painted to porcelain/stoneware. At 91, she continues to work in her studio in Raleigh, North Carolina. Elaine has served as Juror on many art panels, including, but limited to, a Guggenheim Fellowship.
