Indiana Governor's China

In 2001 Phyllis Gladden then president of the Indiana World Organization of China Painters implemented a project to paint a set of china as a gift to the state of Indiana. Thirty (7 piece) place settings and thirty serving pieces were painted each with a different Indiana wildflower. The finished china was presented to then First Lady Judy O'Bannon at the IWOCP convention.Later in the summer Mrs. O'Bannon hosted a luncheon to recognize all the Indiana Artists for this legacy. April of 2013 Indiana First lady Karen Pence once again invited the Indiana artists to the Governor's residence for a reception to honor and thank them for their contribution. Mrs. O'Bannon was also there to share at the event. The following is a list of the artists that lent their talents to make this possible. Some of these artists are now deceased (*) but their expertise lives on in these lovely finished pieces for the Hoosier state.
