BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com via BRRH) — For the fifth year in a row, the local chapter of Gold Coast Porcelain Artists has donated hand-painted “Cups of Love” to the Christine E. Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute at Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s Center for Breast Care. The cups, each one unique and signed by the artists, are given to recently diagnosed breast cancer patients in the hope of providing strength, courage and determination in their fight against the disease.
“Our chapter is honored to donate our works of art to the Center for Breast Care,” said Virginia Bradley, Chapter President. “The chapter includes women from the age of 50 to over 90-years-old and is our way of showing encouragement and support to these brave women.”
Each cup is hand-painted and no two cups are the same. The cups are tied with an inspiration that reads:
This piece of porcelain was hand painted
Signed by the artist and fired to 1400 degrees –
It is as permanent as any other hand painted china.
As porcelain artists, we want to give love to you with this cup…
“We are deeply honored to receive these precious gifts of love,” said Elizabeth Linden, Executive Director of the Institute. “It is an expression of compassion by each of the artists and brings hope and inspiration to those who are fighting the disease.”
Gold Coast Porcelain Artists was established in 1980 and is a member of the Florida State Association of Porcelain Artists. The majority of members have been painting porcelain for many years in weekly classes and seminars. Porcelain painting, often associated with flowers, fruits and portraits, has been a fine art for centuries. For those interested in the “Cups of Love” or the Gold Coast Porcelain Artists, please contact Ms. Bradley at 561.276.7546.
