Artist Joanne DeLomba has been a longtime friend to Festival Fete and we are so excited to have her join us on December 1st and 2nd for Festival Fete’s Holiday Market in Garden City. Joanne has been a regular on the Festival Fete blog (so you can read more about her in previous posts) but she sent me some great images of her latest creations, along with her (fun!) comments:
LADD OBSERVATORY Check out this oversize earthenware charger measuring a generous 11 and a half inches across! Decorated in a bold blue and two-tone green leaf pattern with an abstract geometric pattern on the rim. Gracing the center is a depiction of a landmark observatory – located in Historic Providence, which is a city known for “Boldly going where no man has gone before”!
RHODE ISLAND STATE HOUSE This nice earthenware, hand painted charger measures over 10 inches in diameter and is painted in “spaghetti sauce red” bands with green accents! Situated ‘politically correct’ in the center is a nice postcard depiction of the Capitol Dome of Providence, Rhode Island lovingly embraced by the state’s favorite Crustacean. Is there something fishy going on at the capitol? You tell me.
COLLEGE HILL An ‘OLD IVORY’ China plate in bread and butter size, measuring 8 inches in diameter, is the canvas for this landscape of College Hill in Providence, Rhode Island. Handpainted with a delicate floral design in Robin’s Egg Blue and gold scroll work. The recognizable home to Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design is seen here on just another average day on lovely College Hill.
VISIT SCENIC RHODE ISLAND A nice 10 inch earthenware server in a cheerful ‘picnic’ pattern of yellow and orange checkerboards, polka dots and blue banding with flowers! A very ‘summer-time’ design reminding us to Visit Scenic Rhode Island…if not for the scenery then at least try a LARGE order of Calamari!
