This page is a tribute to our Charter Members and the dealers and individuals who sponsored us when we first started PPIO.

The members demonstrated their faith in the future of PPIO by joining during the time when the organization was in the initial stages of development.

The sponsors supported the cost of hosting the Web Site and/or Mailing List for a one month period in our early stages of development.  We greatly appreciate their help and hope that you will support these sponsors.

Alphabetical Listing of Charter Members

Charter Members Gallery Last Updated: April 17, 2010.

NOTE: Members may have moved or changed their email address since their graphic frame was placed on this page. Although we will attempt to update new information for the members on these pages, as it is known to us, since the information on each member's picture frame is part of a computer graphic file, it is necessary to edit the picture file in order to change the information. This takes more time than just adding the member's new information to these pages. For that reason, these pages may not have the most recent address information for some members. Viewers are advised not to rely on the information on these pages as a means of contacting the member.

Skip to List of Charter Members

In order to avoid a delay in the loading of this page, the Charter Members page is broken into several separate display pages. We eventually hope to have a graphic "frame" for all Charter Members. Where a graphic has not been created for a Charger Member yet, only their name (not linked) will be displayed on this page. If you click on a member's name in the alphabetical listing which has been linked, it will automatically take you to the page where the graphical (frame) representation of their membership is located. At the bottom of each Charter Members' page (including this Main page), there are links to each of the pages. If you click on a link for a page you are already viewing, it will just reload that page.

If a painting is available for a particular member, there will be an asterisk (*) beside their name in the alphabetical list.  And, beside the asterisk, the word "Painting" is a direct link to display the member's painting.   If you want to see the painting, click on this link.   If you want to go to the page where the member's graphic recognition is displayed (if available), then click on that member's name in the list.   You can also view the member's painting by clicking on the graphic recognition.   As more paintings are received from members, they will be added to the display. Member graphics will be added on a regular basis

NEW:  If a member has a studio listing on the Studios Page of this site, you can Click on the "S" beside their name to go to the area (State) on the Studios Page where their studio is listed. If they have a Catalog page or a Web Page on the Porcelain Painters International Online (PPIO) site, you can Click on the "C" (for Catalog) or "W" (for Web Page) to go to their Catalog page or Web site. For those who have separate web sites, these are usually listed with their studio listing on the Studios page or on our Other Web Links page.

Charter Membership in PPIO is now closed. But you may join PPIO as a regular member. Information on joining PPIO is on the Membership page.   Come join us for a fun, warm and educational experience!

If you have a studio which is not listed on the Studios page of this site, and would like to have it listed, contact Marci Blattenberger, at marci@ppio.com, with the information you would like displayed for your studio.

If the link to your studio, catalog or web page, which is on this site, has inadvertently been left off this page, please let Marci know at the above email address, so this can be corrected.

Tragically, several of our Charter Members have passed away in the last few years:  Ann Elliott in December, 2000;  Our beloved "Answer Man"*, Jesse Brown, in June, 2002;  Patricia Whitchurch in September, 2002;  Miriam Gateley in October, 2003,  Dorothy Trent, Carolyn Fink and Larae "GrandmaRae" Miller in 2004.  Their names have been left on the Charter Members list and a Memorial Graphic is displayed for each, in their memory, in the Charter Members Gallery.   Each memorial can be displayed by clicking on the individual name of each member, on the Charter Membership list, below.   The photos of the paintings submitted for the Charter Members Gallery by Ann Elliott, Miriam Gateley, Carolyn Fink and Dorothy Trent remain in the gallery.   Their painting is displayed when the word "Painting", beside their name, is clicked.   Jesse Brown, Patricia Whitchurch and Larae Miller did not submit a painting for the gallery.

*We will soon have a special page for Jesse on this PPIO web site, displaying the comments he sent to the PPIO mailing list as the "Answer Man". The page will also contain other content pertaining to Jesse.
