Announcement   Shipping and handling are ALWAYS included!

I DO MANY OTHER ONE OF A KIND ARTS AND CRAFTS AS WELL AND WILL BE CONTINUALLY ADDING NEW MERCHANDISE.
STOP BY OFTEN TO SEE WHAT I'VE BEEN MAKING FOR YOU!

My name is Lynn Tokos. I am a porcelain artist. I hand paint and kiln fire all of the china you will see in my store. Every piece is a one of a kind and hand signed by me. Depending on the depth of the painting it can take many many fires to acquire the desired effect. The firing is done at 1400 degrees and melts the glaze, and after it cools it hardens back up to seal the paint in. It is really a dying art.

I am also a big fan of repurposing. Sometimes I paint on vintage china that I find at random sales. I will note when that is the case. I also repurpose most of the hard ware on my purses. I really think that makes an item even more special and fun, to know I'm not wasting, but reusing.

Everything in my shop will always be a one of a kind. You will have a unique item for your home or yourself that you will never see anywhere else because I think everyone deserves to feel special about themselves and the things that they surround themselves with.

About

Hand painted china and hand made gifts

I had originally started it in 2008 but I didn't really promote it seriously because I was also working as a waitress and was too busy. Now I have decided to work from home and make this my number 1 priority. I am a crafter and artist at heart and am happiest doing just that. I have trouble deciding what project to make next because I love so many! Living out in the beautiful country gives me such inspiration. My days are so quiet and filled with bird song, frogs singing, and all of the glory of nature, that sometimes I do my sewing, knitting, etc. outdoors. I live with my wonderfully supportive husband and 2 cats, but babysit family and friends dogs often because we love them so much and don't have the time to get another one for ourselves since our 15 year old terrier mix passed. You never know what animals you will find here! I hate cooking and exercise, but I try to make myself do the latter whenever possible. Cooking will NEVER happen! haha. Luckily my husband loves to, so we eat very well. Especially in barbecue weather! In the summer I love working in my flower gardens but find it is getting harder every year, ugh! I don't mind getting older, but I hate the side effects!!! But, I'm lucky because I am very healthy, just getting older like everyone else :( I know I'll never get all of the things made that are in my head because there are so many, but I'm going to give it a valiant effort!!
