The other week I posted a video explaining the techniques and approaches I use when creating expressionist paintings on porcelain, see the video here. So, I decided to show a little more detail about lustre painting during the progress of one of my latest exhibition paintings, in a new video. You can see the progress of this plate here.
I’m really sorry about the sound quality…it wasn’t like that in the preview on the phone app…mmmmm maybe I’ll need to find a new app!!!!
Also, I wanted to thank Adam Crozier, from Woodrow Kilns for inviting me to contribute to his article feature in The Journal of Australian Ceramics, Vol 52/1 April 2013, about their kilns (which I use!) and the work I do on porcelain. Here’s a quick look:

The second post in a series about my trip to Thailand last year. I’ve put together a video to share with you, the porcelain paintings and other arts I saw in Thailand.
I’ve made a video about the trip (nothing flashy, I’m still experimenting with an i-phone app called Splice- despite the info on this site, this app works on my iphone 5).
For me this part of any of my art trips, is the best! I get to meet so many talented people, and I only wish that we had been able to see the Thai porcelain painters make demonstrations at this event…this was one of the big reasons why I came to this exhibition! So I tried to make my own learning journey from this, and see and learn as much as I could in the short time we had. The art work in Thailand covers so many styles yet it is also, distinctly Thai- you’ll see what I mean; and I love the bright and intense colours too. Thai artistry can go from bold lines, to the most intricate of detail, but there is always a warmth and great heart that I feel looking at the paintings and other art and handcrafts by skilled artisans.
The trip started with a visit to Benjarong Village, I was lucky to have purchased some hand painted porcelain from two award winning artists at the TIPP convention 2012. I still have one more video to make about a really special painting I purchased! The interesting part of traditional Thai painting is that all of the design is painted in liquid bright gold (10%), it’s dried, then the powdered pigments are mixed with water to the consistency of runny cream, and painted in the spaces. This dries, and it’s fired. All of the work is completed in one firing. There was a demonstration booth at the convention, where I got to have a go at painting in this style- you’ll see my effort on the video
I loved all of the other exhibits at the Bangsai Arts and Craft Centre (The SUPPORT Foundation of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand) SACICT. It was a wonderful collection of modern and some traditional art work, including porcelain, silk, clothing, giftware, wooden carvings, other fabric textiles. I really enjoyed visiting the art information section of the gallery where they explained the processes of silk making and porcelain and ceramic decoration.
Here’s the video:

Thanks for watching. Please share this post if you think your friends will like it too. I can’t wait to go back to Thailand again…
I’m sharing another magazine feature of my award winning porcelain vase in Thailand (see here), this time, my porcelain painting is featured in Art and Porcelaine from Switzerland. I’ve got some more magazine features coming up over the next few months, within Australia, the US and Norway again (see last publication).
It was lovely to meet Patrice Frass and the lovely Marie Claire Frass in Thailand, thank you for publishing about my painting!

My other award winning plate in Thailand
Last month I was interviewed by Editor Margrete Tennfjord for a four page article in the Norwegian art magazine DECOR-magasinet. It was a great experience, to participate in this. The article has now been published in 2013′s Issue 2, here is an excerpt from one of the pages:
Ingrid Lee fra Melbourne i Australia har malt denne flotte porselensvasen. Du kan lese om hennes mange kreative prosjekt i nr.2, som kommer i midten av april. Dette er en side fra artikkelen. Vasen ble premiert av dronning Sirikit av Thailand på utstilling i Bangkok.
This beautiful porcelain vase is painted by Ingrid Lee in Melbourne, Australia. You can read more about her in issue no 2, published in mid April. The vase was rewarded by Queen Sirikit of Thailand on an convention in Bangkok. This is a page from the article.
Now, I have been invited by this magazine to share the progress of one my lustre paintings from the Destiny and Love series, which is exciting for me! This issue is a few months away.
Check out the DECOR-magasinet website for more details about magazine subscription.
Finally finished this new painting on porcelain this week, “Floating in my freedom,” Ingrid Lee, 2013. Oval porcelain plate, 38cm. It is painted in an abstract expressionism style with lustre, liquid bright gold, platinum, copper, burnishing gold and paste. You can see the progress of this painting here, and here. I have made a video of the painting at the end of this post.
In this painting, Floating in my freedom, the central figure is floating in her personal freedom, representing the notion that to float in one’s freedom is a pure sense of liberation and ease. The use of light, airy, almost cloud like light yellow forms and gold connects the ideas of this painting to a sense of happiness. This colour has been emerging into my artwork since my trip to a Thai temple last year (see more here), and it can be seen in the painting Love is like a Ball and Chain, completed at the end of 2012. I mention the word ease, because in the state of liberation and true happiness, I believe one of the first senses we feel of being truly in this state is of ease, free of attachments and our focus is aligned without unnecessary distraction. It is not so much a dream like state, as I do believe it can be a reality. If you have been following the blog posts about this painting series on the theme of Destiny and Love, I think that this painting is representing the journey to an ultimate of self love.
I have decided to video this painting (just using my iphone- no great production work ) because one of the unique features I use with my lustre work is to use the multiple reflections of lustre painting techniques to enhance both the viewer’s experience of my painting and more importantly, to add a deeper level of expression. I explain this on the video, but if you require a translator, I’m writing about what I’ve basically talked about, and you can use the translator here on the page I hope that helps.
I explain that the bold contrasting colours of purples and greens indicate that this journey of liberation, is still not complete…it is a process of emergence, it is dynamic and flowing. It think that the dynamism is an important concept, because for my, that is reality…our lives are not always in perfect liberation, it will change, and by being flexible and open to the change is when we get back on that path to ease. You can see this idea expressed by the moving and merging lines and shapes in this painting which are shown to more detail in this video. The layering and juxtaposing of copper, liquid bright gold and burnishing gold and yellow lustres shimmer and make the eye move along the lines as the reflections attract the eye. These techniques create physical movement and interaction for the viewer, in an attempt to feel the expression or experience as portrayed by the central figure in the composition.
This painting is probably the next step of transcending the shadows, as shown in my other painting completed last month on canvas “Transcending the shadows, finding the light.”
What do you think about this abstract expressionist style of painting on porcelain? Please let me know in the comments below
- Other paintings on porcelain in abstrast expressionist style
- This painting style is also similar to the canvas work, which is still exhibited in St Petersburg Russia: Funny Valentine
I’ve been really productive over the past few weeks, I’ve been sharing little updates here and there on facebook. I have an exciting new set of works on porcelain inspired by Roman art which I’m enjoying the research and design process immensely. Also, I’ll have some other porcelain paintings to share soon, I wrote about them a few weeks ago also here, and here…lots to look forward to…I do believe that I’m learning the secret to a 30 hour day. Here are a few photos of the plates before the 3rd firing (so it looks pretty brownish among the colour…and the black lines will fire off), there are still about 2 firings to go.
Again, not all colours look like they should yet….
Some of the colours on this plate will fire as purple, there are more deep red orange colours here too- wait for the magic of the kiln!
In the next few weeks you’ll see my art licensing project which I’ve been developing with a Russian company over the past 3 months…very exciting. Thanks again to those friends on facebook who have given their feedback on my marketing and branding designs of this project too, you’ve been a wonderful help! I’ll be sharing more about this and lots of other new things in a few weeks, so check back to the fan pages or here for updates.
New paintings: Expressionist landscapes
Here are two of my latest canvas paintings; these paintings, and maybe one more, are exploring the journey of finding peace of mind. There is one more larger painting on this theme which I’m currently working on. These paintings are completed in acrylic paints and texture medium, building up layers and washes of colours and contrasts to convey the effects. The titles of these paintings are fairly self explanatory, I don’t have the time at the moment to write more.
Landscapes- Evaporating my fears, Ingrid Lee 2013, acrylic on canvas 120 cm x 92 cm
Sailing inside my tranquility, Ingrid Lee 2013, acrylic on canvas 120 cm x 92 cm
Lastly, here is a completed painting from about 3 weeks ago, which I started last year (read about it here). The other tenebrist inspired paintings are at the first few layers of under-painting stage….so I’ll write about those more as they progress.
I hope you enjoy the update, thanks for reading….please leave your comments on the blog post, I’d love to hear from you
The challenge of abstract expressionist lustre on porcelain is where I am at. For a long while I have wanted to use lustres to paint in as similar a style as I can to my acrylic work. So, unlike acrylics where I have a first layer of colour to lay down first thinking (see here, here and here), which builds up to a certain level of what I see in my mind, then the rest develops from that point. For this new painting I have to visualise and work through the painting at many layers and levels so that I can lay the correct colours and effect for firing, so that they will be seen later. Always remembering that once fired- it is permanent and no room for error. For those who understand the process of lustres or glazes with watercolours, this is not easy. Acrylics are very forgiving!
Here are some images of old works with glazing, these photos are from studies which I taught in masterclasses years ago:
Very early stages of ink painting, it was a study of glass bottles, from memory this was the first day of the masterclass (the whole painting is A2 size)…it was a 3 day class, so this is unfinished at this photo:
A small section of larger painting using glazes with acrylic painting, “Asters”. See the whole painting on facebook
While it is easier to control the colours for traditional painting of flowers or animals…abstract expressionist or expressionist work for me not only deals with the immediacy of composition, but it must also reflect the feeling, at that point in time- not easy when you have to wait, and can change your application of paint! For porcelain painting, each layer of paint and ideas must be fired- so there is stop start of the flow of emotions and thought. It is an interesting problem on an intellectual level, for which I do not have the time nor inclination to philosophically anal-ise- and no that is not a typo nor indulge in deliberating that notion here further; I have the fortune of children who require lunch and other attention which brings me back to my reality and focus (the life of a female artist with a family is interesting )…so I will focus on that which is most important the creation!
For me, this style of work is not just a quick brushstroke approach in a single layer of colour, brushed on, ready to fire only once…this is not my style nor way of thinking. The colours must build to reveal the thought and the feeling- as they do on canvas. The beauty of porcelain is that it is translucent in effect, has a different feel to the final painting, it has a cool intensity…resonating much differently than canvas does- largely because of the difference in painting surface. Of course brushwork is inherently connected to this, but it is more like an extension like a petal opening to reveal what is inside, or at times it is a linear communication in itself.
For this painting, I know that on the final layer, I will use gold/platinum work and maybe some paste- so this is not thought of until the end- they are the final thoughts and solutions to the idea expressed. But like on my acrylic paintings, where I have these layers of medium lights, I must plan for these in advance and work down, not up in the painting- if that makes sense. I realise that I need to ‘feel’ in the middle of the painting, and work down to create the depths which will reveal the final lights….a problem which I worked through in the painting “Maybe It’s Love.”
This is the plate I’m working on, a 30.5 cm oval porclain plate..concept explores the dream like state of being in love, love is a two way dream….
Masking fluid for the lighter areas. This is what the lustres paints look like before I fire it….there are 5 colours on this plate.
I decided to try another approach and started a second plate, and add the second figure on the first firing, and simplify the design at this stage, also using different colours (again unfired).
It is an interesting method for me to try channel my feelings and thoughts to be expressed in this style. I was really happy with the paintings “Falling to Pieces” they ustilised more simple techniques, effects and design elements to express the ideas with. The current plate of “Union” precipitated some of those techniques I had been thinking through…I think I have now been able to think it through more. The challenge of lustres is that I cannot see any intensity of ‘real’ colour as they are all brown or yellow or green liquids…so I think tonally and ignore the chroma. So it is painting on many levels, like a mental multitasking, so that the final result will represent my initial response to the muse or concept- I keep journal to map out the plan.
Is it abstract expressionist work or expressionist?
While it is not important for me to find a box to place my work into, it is an interesting notion for me to think about- this one time In my concise nutshell, the tradition of abstract expressionsim in the 1940s America, reflected spontaneity of brushwork and application of paint to release the creativity of the unconscious mind. The method of painting was as fundamental as the painting itself. Interestingly such works during this movement were at time neither abstract, or expressionist ..rather focusing on the spontaneity as previously described. So in relation to porcelain painting using my methods…how spontaneous is sponteneous?
Willem de Kooning, Mary Callery, Arshile Gorky, Helen Frankenthaler are particular influences for me.
Then, expressionism, largely founded in Germany 1905-1930s reflects intense, personal and passionate expressions of the artist;s inner most feelings, rather than to represent reality of the world around them. It is characteristic of violet, unreal brushwork and vibrant colour. Conceptually the canvas is the vehicle for where he emotions are communicated from. See more images etc here. Particular influences of Chagall, Kandinsky, Klee, Marc, Macke, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Natalia Sergeevna Goncharova and Max Ernst. A gallery of images from this movement at the Guggenheim
What ever it is is not important, rather it is the expressive processes and product of creativity involved in these lustre applications which drives my work.
It’s been busy few weeks, so I haven’t had much chance to paint porcelain- except for today! The luxury of almost a whole day without interruptions, instead of painting late at night or in bits and pieces during the day It’s ok really, I’ve been working on a few collaborative art projects, one with an overseas company for licensing distribution of my paintings, and another project for demonstrations later in the year…I’ll divulge more about those in time. But all of the paper work and organising of those have taken up a lot of time. I had a fun demonstration via skype the other night, and otherwise I’ve been planning and planning new art works.
Today I finally finished the canvas painting I started late last year (see progress here), I’ll post the finished painting once it has been sufficiently dried and varnished. I’m really glad that one is out of my headspace…as I move onto porcelain paintings.
Here are some snap shots of first firings or early stages of these lustre paintings on porcelain, both part of the Destiny and Love series.
This painting is a 30.5cm oval plate, and will be titled ‘Union’ you can see the colour plan on the drawing, this shows a few of the colours I will use as the unfired lustre work is all yellow-brownish in colour. This painting was inspired by a poem I wrote about the concept of union, and the text will also feature on this design. This design element links to the next painting which will explore asemic writing (what? read on ).
Here is the early stage of the painting ‘Introspection’ which I wrote about here. This will also be completed with lustre paints, gold and platinum. This painting will feature Asemic writing, which
‘is a wordless open semantic form of writing. The word asemic means “having no specific semantic content”. With the
nonspecificity of asemic writing there comes a vacuum of meaning which is left for the reader to fill in and interpret. All of this is
similar to the way one would deduce meaning from an abstract work of art. The open nature of asemic works allows for meaning
to occur trans-linguistically; an asemic text may be “read” in a similar fashion regardless of the reader’s natural language. Multiple
meanings for the same symbolism are another possibility for an asemic work.’ 1
I love the idea of asemic writing, and it totally fits in with this design conceptually. It not only resonates with the abstract work I paint, but I’m getting to reconnect with my past…did you know I used to lecture in linguistics and language (among other arts subjects) at university? This connection I find fascinating to explore, while that work was many years ago now, I’ve always had an interest in the semantics and semiotics of language. So this element is a nice way to return to the past and enjoy some brain play for me…I am happy!
While these are in the kiln, I’ll start a new canvas painting which has been on the back burner, and finish my design plans for asemic writing- while I still have free time!

Finally I have time to sit and write about my amazing week in Thailand last year. During the 8-11 November 2012, I was invited as a guest artist by artist, Helga Jaermann (Painting Teacher at the Bangsai Arts and Crafts Centre, and notable master in porcelain painting for over 40 years), to exhibit my porcelain paintings at the Thailand International Porcelain Painting Convention in honour of the Queen Sirikit’s 80th birthday celebrations. I won some awards, if you haven’t seen them, they are here, and here. So what else happened on this trip? HEAPS!!!!!! I’ve decided to write three posts one about the art and artists in Thailand, another about an award winning Thai artist who I also bought an artwork from, and this one about Tours, events and hairy pancakes! I’m going to do a picture story style post with a little bit of description, there are a few videos too…pictures tell more than me writing- and I could go on and on, believe me! It was a fantastic experience, and I plan to go back again in the very near future.
If you’d like a thorough detail of this trip day by day, please read my dear friend and sister Yumiko Kanazawa’s blogpost about our trip- we travelled together on this trip. Yumi is a Japanese artist, she won an award too, I love the story behind her paintings and the wonderfully creative journey she is on.
I really want to learn her kutani painting, I plan to travel to Japan to learn kutani painting with Yumi and her Master, and see more about Yumi’s integration of East meets West painting.
We stayed at Dream Hotel, Bangkok…the hotel was fantastic, all of the staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful, we had a very pleasurable stay. The restaurant food was really great…good atmosphere for late night drinks too. It is very hot in Thailand, but the hotel was totally air conditioned without fail!

Views outside of our hotel room
After a 1+ hour bus ride we arrived at Donkaidee Benjarong Village
I will show more of the artwork from this award winning porcelain painting gallery and studio in the next post. At this venue, you can stay and study with the artists here also! Something to think about maybe for the next trip Yumiko? There are many places in Thailand, with posters and paintings of the beautiful Queen Sirikit, I can see why her people love her so much, and her smile exudes such warmth and friendliness, which is seen in all the people I met with.

On the riverboat, thankful for the cool breeze and wonderful entertainment form the musicians and dancers! Did I mention Thailand was hot?
We ate a wonderful banquet lunch on the river…
This is a short video I took of an internal waterfall at the lunch venue….I want this in my studio! Can you imagine such luxury in a workplace?? How relaxing and inspiring…..a dream!
King Rama II Memorial Park gardens….beautiful~
We then visited a temple and training ground…
Later that evening we attended the opening ceremony…and met BOND!!!!! Bond Malikaew paints on porcelain as well, and has a very interesting alla prima method his works are very expressive. Bond was an awesome host, and friend to us both, we hope to catch up with him again soon on our travels.
Later that evening, Bond took Yumi and I to the Hotel Sirroco...AMAZING place!!!!! is all I can say…thank you Bond . I loved the skybar! It was a fantastic evening after a really busy day…and we still continued on into the early morning at some fun places.
DAY 2: At TIPP 2012 Bangsai
We actually did a lot on this day, but I’m saving these stories for my next blog post. Here is the TIPP convention in Bangsai, at The SUPPORT Arts and Crafts International Centre of Thailand (SACICT).
Day 3- Guest artist Lunch, Tour to a temple and hairy pancakes
Helga Jaermann, Patrice Frass (editor of Magazine Art and Porcelaine), and me- Thailand Porcelain Convention 2012. In this photo you can see a little pin which Helga and I are wearing, I was presented with this pin for being a guest artist. You can see more of the Thailand Trip, paintings by Yumi and myself, and other art works from the whole event in the Magazine Art and Porcelaine.
I actually bought this painting by award winning artist (plate here in the photo below)…you can read more about that and see the video soon. Here, I’m speaking to the interpreter. I spent most of this day talking to artists and shopping….I know that doesn’t surprise you Yes I bought one pair of shoes- slip on ones, because I got nasty blisters and foot swelling from the heat, so my little black patent leather flats were quite useless for comfort. In saying that I still painfully squeezed my feet in the gold strappy shoes for the Royal Gala Award dinner and presentations- as you do!
Later that day, the feature and guest artists were invited to a special lunch at the Bangsai Arts and Crafts Centre. The food and hospitality was wonderful, and a great venue also. We got to see lots of Thai artwork, including some contemporary art- you’ll these photos in my next post (sorry, there’s not enough room in this post!) Here is just the start of the banquet, the whole table was filled with delicious spicy and hot dishes, fish, lobster, soup…too much to mention.
Some of the feature and guest artists from the lunch….(left) Yumiko Kanazawa, Helga Jaermann, Rocio Borobia, Me, Marie-Clarie Frass, Sudasamorn Suwancharoen , Joerg Kugelmeier, Erika Bemme, Di Curtin, Nelia Ferreira and Beatriz Ramirez.
Wat Yai Chaya Mongkol (The Great Temple of Auspicious Victory), Ayudhaya, Thailand.
After the lunch we were taken in small groups to a Buddhist temple, which was known as the Royal temple, when Ayudhaya was the capital city back in 1350. This temple has great historical significance, it was the seat of Buddhist patriarchs and monks who practices meidation and insight. This temple was named after the Victory of the King Naresuan the Great over the Burmese invasion in 1593. I absolutely loved this part of the day and the trip. For me going to any spiritual place always gives me a deep sense of inner peace and calm. These places for me have different energy and resonance which I feel as soon as I enter them- maybe it’s just me. Whether it was in cathedrals in St Petersburg or Moscow, local cathedrals and churches in Australia, and the Buddhist temple here in Thailand, I always receive a great sense of calm and peace. This was a wonderful opportunity to be thankful for my journeys, and pray for my family and friends and make that time for quietening the mind and spirit. I love having the porcelain painting of the Buddha in my home- I find it to be a meditative point in my home to use throughout the day, and brings happy memories, and takes me back the quiet I experienced at this temple.
NEXT! more food
Hairy pancakes that’s what I called them anyway….these are a fruit flavoured crepe batter- banana, kiwi,vanilla (I think) and some other fruit. The pancakes are soooo delicious on their own, but then it gets better, you fill them with flavoured and coloured fairy floss (more like persian fairy floss texture). The floss resembles the texture of silk strands. You then assemble like a filled crepe, roll it up and eat! These were freshly cooked and still a little warm, Yumi and I loved them…I ate all of mine, I assure you I was thinking of you all
Yumi, I was tempted to show that picture…..but I didn’t
Day 4- Awards and Gala Dinner
A BUSY day and evening. Most of the morning was spent doing promotional photos and more shopping (of course!)
Ingrid Lee, Yumiko Kanazawa, Marie Claire Frass, Di Curtin, a great photo of the morning when the awards were announced for the porcelain competition.
Di Curtin was one of the Feature Artists at TIPP, she is the Australasian President of APAT and together with her committee in New South Wales, is organising the next Australasian Exhibition & Convention in Sydney in October 2013. You can see the painting of Australian flannel flowers in her contemporary style, which Di presented for auction in honour of the Queen of Thailand’s Birthday, see Di’s photo and the APAT fan page. I look forward to seeing many of you at this event, I will be doing some demonstrations there- more about this later.
Below is Chakrawut Phongkraisrisiri, Helga Jaermann, and Karom Boontem. These are her award winning students from the Bangsai Painting Station, for the TIPP 2012, you can see their winning paintings and my vase far right.
Later that evening…….the big event! Here, Bond and I…actually our hair is almost matching- and our clothing compliments too (he a purple coloured sash band)…really the three of us matched! This was only the start of tonnes of publicity photos for the evening, I was really surprised at how special and BIG this event really was. I’m still amazed.
Ingrid Lee and His Excellency The Privy Counsellor, Thailand…Here I am talking about my two award winning paintings at the vernissage, prior to accepting the award.
Here I am saying thankyou “Kob Khun Ka” to His Excellency for listening to my Vernissage.
Receiving one of my awards….we had to rehearse the formal acceptance and curtsy.
Can I explain the hair issue, which is bugging me in all of these photos….humidity, a tiny can of hairspray and heat, and I’ll repeat humidity again with curly hair do not mix. I needed more hairspray, and you can only take tiny cans on the plane, and I couldn’t get these little cans with super stayfix lacquer…for those of you who know me really well, you’ll understand my need to make this comment.
New friendships were made during this trip, and I can’t wait to catch up with many of these lovely people again. Here I am with Sudasamorn Suwancharoen, a lovely woman, and was very hospitable and welcoming. I love her bright coloured clothing throughout the week…her silk suits were impeccable.
Me, Yumi, Ivonne Planos, Audney Thuestad, Helga Jaermann
I hope you enjoyed this blog post about my trip to Thailand. The next blog post will be about some of the artists I met with and beautiful art works and handicrafts I saw, and there’ll be one more after that featuring videos with the artist who painted the Buddha plate I purchased…so make sure you catch the newsfeed of follow me on my networks (top left of page).
I’d love to hear what you think about this trip, please leave your comments or share this blog post with your friends, click on the social networks below! Thanks
Just sharing a beautiful painting by Emma Meyer, of women decorating porcelain. I just want to thank my friend from facebook, Marina Orlova, for posting this beautiful and inspiring art work to me this morning….a wonderful way to start my day. The fantastic part about being an artist, and in particular an artist on porcelain are the friendships which connect us all from this art form. I have been truly blessed that I not only gain great pleasure artistically and spiritually as an artist to paint on porcelain, but I have made the most amazing friendships with fellow artists and art lovers internationally from this beautiful medium also.
