Custom Hand Painted Porcelain Signs

Custom Hand Painted Porcelain Signs

My specialty is creating  custom hand painted porcelain signs for people who are looking for a unique piece of art that will bring a personal touch to their home, both outdoor and indoor.


I have a long experience in decorating porcelain plates, vases, tea and coffee cups and a whole lot of different items. I  enjoy all these activities but no other type of work on porcelain gives my customers and me as many creative possibilities. Projecting from scratch a new and unique personalized sign for their homes is definitively my favorite .

The great value of hand painting your own house sign is being able to choose the colors and shapes that best represent you.  As long as the final result is done with skill and taste of course!

And that’s what I’m here for: to provide you with a careful painting by an educated hand born and raised in a country – Italy – where art and beauty are your everyday companion.

Curb Appeal

If you’re aiming to improve curb appeal for your home, start by checking out the way it looks from the sidewalk.

As beautiful as it may be, any house needs some personal touch to be immediately recognizable from the street. A little detail that will tell both visitors and people casually passing by how different your building is from the others next to it.

One of the things that immediately makes a house stand out in the neigborhood is a new house address sign with a beautiful custom decoration that looks nothing like the rest.

It’s actually very easy to get a start on this project.  Street names and numbers identify your house already,  so let’s take advantage of it. Let’s turn these elements into a beautiful hand painted writing.

You can choose to use only the street number or write down your complete address, especially when the name of your street has a nice and evocative sound!

You will definitevely want your sign to show that you live on Shell Avenue or Sunnyside Road for example. It comes natural to build up some colorful motifs around those pretty names!

Talk about  creating custom hand painted porcelain signs that sound great right from the start!

Freedom to Create

On the other side, you don’t have to limit your choice to a  traditional address plaque.  A house and its owners’ personalities may want to identify themselves with a different approach according to their taste.  You might prefer to write down a family name or some kind of nickname for the house itself and, you know what, that works just fine!

A literary quote, a saying that has a special meaning  in your life can also be a great choice. What we want to do is to create a truly unique sign for your house only.  Originality will never be too much!

After focusing the elements to be written by hand painting them on your sign, it’s time to choose a decoration.

The actual creative process will begin to take form with a world of endless possibilities.

Floral patterns, a composition made of shells, a rustic country scene.  There are so many choices when it comes to decorating a sign and I’m always willing to experiment with my customers.

Taste and color will show just the same no matter what size you choose. Both on larger signs for the outdoor wall or smaller plaques ready to be fixed next to the doorbell.

All my custom hand painted porcelain signs will look special when you walk to the door or look at it from across the street.

Beauty and style just can’t be measured in inches or centimetres!

Custom Garden Signs

Gardens are a world apart when it comes to choosing a personalized sign.

The variety that can be found even in the smallest backyard is a great source of inspiration. Different flower species blooming in different seasons, light and colors constantly changing.

Pink and light blue hydrangeas, purple wisteria branches, blue morning glories. Any type of flower can be used to compose your ideal flower bouquet ready to be painted. A custom garden sign will show all the love for your garden.

The same is true for vegetable gardens. Those red tomatoes and yellow bell peppers are a true joy to look at, aren’t they! The hard work that goes behind growing your own species  guarantees  healthy recipes on your dinner table.

All this effort deserves some recognition.  A sign with the name and colors of your little world in the back of the house is therefore a great choice.

Nature Comes Alive

No garden looks alive without its natural inhabitants. That’s why I always include some little insect buzzing around the plaque just like in the real thing. Your garden is their home in the first place after all! Let’s give the little ladybug and the cute bumblebee all the credit they deserve!

Rain or shine, a hand painted porcelain sign with your favorite custom  decoration will be there year round. The sign will be bearing your garden’s name no matter what the weather is like. Porcelain signs, once painted and fired in the kiln at high temperatures, can stand any type of climate. This type of sign will not risk any breaking due to extreme cold or hot weather. The colors, once painted and fired in the kiln, will not fade away through the years.

All the great aspects of using this type of material to create custom hand painted porcelain signs are thoroughly explained here.

Personalized Kitchen Signs

The kitchen is a very special place inside any home, large or small.

Are you looking for ideas to add a unique touch to this room? Would you like to give a long deserved prize to the chef of the house?  Create a personalized kitchen sign with his/her name on it combined with some kind of trademark food element.

From spicy chili peppers to colorful yellow lemons for a tasty marinade, it’s a feast for the eyes. So, all you have to do is pick your favorite vegetable combination, maybe accompany it with some exquisite seafood specialty. Ask me to  elaborate a tasty and colorful menu for your sign!


Colors and taste are literally at home inside the kitchen, what better way to show it!
