The photo does not do the plate justice. The colors are bright and, as always, coordinate perfectly with the other pieces I have purchased before. Pamdesigns continues to be one of my favorites

About

Scintillating fabrics, vivid pottery, delightful painted surfaces. No colour out of bounds; a cornucopia of creatures and plants, patterns and moods.

I was born in CT, and raised in Barcelona and in Southern Spain, where the experience of painting pottery within the bold and decorative Mediterranean aesthetic allowed many forms of modernism and organic design to make indelible stylistic impressions on me.

These influences shaped my approach to the use of vivid colour and lively pattern. My skills were then formally refined in England, culminating in a BA Hons. Degree at Middlesex, (London) in Printed Textiles. Upon finishing my degree, I was pleased to be one of the winners of the prestigious House And Garden New Designers Awards (1989) with my hand screen-printed furnishing fabrics (Wall Covering category).

Shortly thereafter, I returned to the States, to Sarasota Florida, to be near family.

The subtropical climate, vegetation and vast marine life had its own subsequent influence on my sense of design and style. Since my return to the States I have painted numerous custom designed painting projects, in the form of murals, canvas floor-cloths, custom hand painted fabric and custom painted furniture. These works comprised the majority of my artistic output. I began to develop a keen interest in ceramic work as I concurrently undertook an increasing number of tile mural commissions. My enthusiasm for ceramic work has led me to develop a unique and very personal style in under glaze painting. My work in this area is identified by its lively, almost folkloric pattern, bright colours, and whimsical creatures.

Love of colour and fusion of materials, pigments and glazes inspires me. I relish the saturation of fibre, wood, canvas, or ceramic with pigment, and the further effects of many layers upon surfaces. The added synergy created by firing the ceramics in my kiln takes my design work into a whole other realm, as the heat imparts its unpredictable final touches on what I have started with my brush.

I love working with materials and objects that are easily put to everyday use, and which add a sense of enjoyment and playful enrichment to any living space. I am most happy when know that that my work has brought a smile and a lifting of the spirits to those who have my work in their lives!

Welcome to PamDesign.
In this shop I feature some of my hand painted pottery, fabric items and painted furniture. My regular artwork also includes murals and painted floorcloths, but I mostly paint those to order. In fact I do a lot of custom artwork.

You can see examples of that kind of work on my website www.pamdesign.com, and at my regularly updated Facebook Artwork and Design page at www.facebook.com/pages/Pamdesign

Feel free to contact me with any questions, or inquiries for custom work.
I have been making custom artwork professionally since 1989.
Thanks for visiting my shop!
Check back from time to time, as I add new items regularly.

Shipping
Shipping costs vary greatly. Large items, or multiple item shipments may require corrections by me to the shipping estimates shown in my etsy shop.

Please contact me directly about getting a price for shipping items beyond the U.S.

In the unlikely event that a shipment arrive damaged, shippers require that you please keep the boxes and packing material for inspection for any insurance claims.
Keeping the boxes etc for a few days can be an inconvenience to you. I do appreciate your patience if this were to become necessary, and apologize for any imposition. Hopefully it will never occur!!
Refunds and Exchanges
Please see above re: damaged shipments. I appreciate very much your co- operation in keeping shipping materials for insurance claim inspections!

In the sad event there is breakage or damage, I am very happy to replace items. This may be a process that takes a little time, but I can repaint most items pretty exactly. Not to worry.
