Hand painted Ceramic Plates and Platters

Susan Alsup has been painting just about as long as she can remember –oil paintings on canvas, acrylic tole paintings on trays, and painting chairs and other furniture pieces. Although her life has been peppered with artwork throughout, Susan’s latest endeavor is painting ceramic plates and platters.

The design for each item requires at least two hours of work, and then the plate or platter must be fired overnight in a kiln to set the paint. This twist on her career, interestingly enough, began in about 2005. She initially painted plates for a church bazaar. After that, a local business began selling the plates, and the opportunities grew from there. Susan says that she is very happy painting, whether for profit or not.

Susan’s art work is found in Point Clear at The Marriott Grand Hotel, in Mobile at St. Paul’s School Campus Store, in Magnolia Springs, Dauphin Island, and Fairhope, Alabama, and in Cashiers, North Carolina.
