Elaine Y Shore has been creating original, hand painted and hand carved, one of a kind , functional porcelain since 2009, when she moved to Humboldt County after a career in financial modeling and corporate finance. Her pieces are meant to be beautiful, functional art to be used every day and include bowls, vases, mugs, tumblers and dishes.
Using a fine, white porcelain, she throws or hand builds each piece, then fires the kiln to 2,245°F, also called Cone 10, so that the pieces are very durable.
Recently, Elaine has been working in two complementary styles: She uses colored underglazes to hand paint the porcelain, which is then fired, then dipped in a clear glaze and fired again, resulting in bright, colorful work featuring flowers, fish and animals. She also creates striking, black and white pieces which she hand carves, using a technique called “sgraffito”.
