About The Artist
Janine Louise Littrell • Yacolt, WA
Ceramics • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
After art college, I became a professional stain glass artist in a glass studio for 15 years. During that time, I was introduced to clay. I attended many classes and workshops and fell in love with hand building. I have had several works of my art, including clay monoprints, exhibited in California. Currently, I primarily work with porcelain and various design concepts in creating my ceramic vessels. I have great inspiration looking out of my studio windows of beautiful nature views.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
All pieces using porcelain are folded and layered to create a textured vessel portraying a feeling of fluidity or motion. The glaze applications are very time consuming and rigorous. I try to make each vessel as thin as the porcelain will allow. Each piece is fired to bisque cone 06 and then the glazing applications are applied. Once dry, each piece is fired to cone 6.
