Remembering a dear friend:
Patricia (Pat) Griffin Hathcoat was born on May 15, 1953, to R. T. Griffin and Geneva Ann (Byram) Griffin in Mt. Pleasant, Texas. As the oilfields offered job opportunities, the family relocated to Winnsboro, Texas. Pat was a graduate of Winnsboro High School. After graduating, she married Ron Hathcoat on May 29, 1971, and they soon moved to Ft. Worth. Pat attended Tarrant County College and later Texas Women’s University. She was an accredited member of the Professional Administrator Credentialing Board of Texas during her preschool directorship years at Stonebridge Learning Center, McKinney; Primrose at Chase Oaks, Plano; and the two La Petite Academies in Plano and Allen. Pat for the past 15 years was an active member of the East Fork Baptist Church where she served as teacher, pianist and choir member as long as her health permitted. And of course, she was a pastor’s wife.
Her career in childhood education was shortened due to a liver disease. In 2002, after being on the national transplant list for 3 years, she received a liver transplant. At that time the doctors at Baylor University Medical Center projected that her life was extended by approximate ten year, but they were wrong. The Lord extended her life for 18 years! And during those years Pat became interested in porcelain art, and it was not long before she was teaching porcelain art to her young students in Celina. She served as an officer in the North Texas Porcelain Art Club of McKinney as well as in the China Painting Teachers of Texas.
Pat is survived by her husband of 50 years, Rev. Ron Hathcoat of Celina, Texas; three sons: Ronnie Hathcoat, Nashville, Tennessee; Michael Hathcoat & Jenifer Ellis of Carrollton Texas; Stephen Hathcoat and Karen Hathcoat, Allen, Texas; and, one brother, Dwayne Griffin and wife Becky Griffin of Alto Texas. And, of course, let’s not forget the grandchildren! There is Justin Hathcoat, Austin Texas; Hallie Hathcoat, Tom Bean Texas; Lucas Hathcoat, Tom Bean, Texas; Brittney Hathcoat, Sachse Texas; Kayla Hathcoat, Texarkana Texas; Kallan Hathcoat, McGregor Texas; Chelsea Hathcoat, Pilot Point, Texas; Kelly Schwab, Katherine Schwab, Nathan Schwab and Julie Schwab of Allen Texas. Numerous other family members and friends.
Pat was preceded in death by her parents R.T. Griffin and Geneva Griffin Phelps and sister Brenda Strawbridge.
The family will be receiving friends for visitation and viewing on Friday, October 8, 2021 from 9:30 am to 11:00 am at East Fork Baptist Church, 2430 FM546, McKinney, TX 75069. The Celebration of Life service will begin at 11:00 am with Rev. Jack May officiating. A procession will follow services to Wilson Chapel Cemetery, 100 Chapel Lane @ Bridgefarmer Road, McKinney, TX 75069 where Pat will be laid to rest. ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you for letting us know. She was a dear lady. Condolences to the family.
Pat was such a lovely, talented lady who loved everyone. She worked tirelessly for our art as long as she was able. We will all miss her smiling face and joyous personality. RIP dear friend.🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️❤️
Sad to hear this news. My condolences to the family.
So sad to hear this. Thank you for sharing with all of us.
So sorry, she will be missed dearly. My condolences for her loved ones and family members.
Thank you for posting this information. I had not heard this. I am so sorry to hear about her passing. Such a sweet lady. I will miss her.
She will certainly be missed. She met the challenges she faced with such a positive attitude.
A lovely lady! May she Rest In Peace!❤️❤️❤️
I am saddened to read this. She was a lovely lady. God bless those who are missing her today.
Just a wonderful and beautiful Lady. She was always fun to paint with and a caring individual. We will all miss her.
So sad to lose another friend.
Will miss her, prayers for her family.
Pat was so sweet and a good friend! I will miss her! ❤

Awesome pieces. Thanks for sharing.
Hi ~ so beautiful
Love these! Thanks for sharing.
Please keep Jean Donald and her family, especially her daughter, Holly, who has been her caregiver for several years as Jean has courageously fought a battle with cancer and is now on hospice in your prayers. Jean has been a member of the Texas State Federation of Porcelain Art Clubs, China Painting Teachers of Texas and Heart of Texas PAC for many years, way before I started. She has served diligently as an officer and on many committees of all 3 organizations. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️❤️❤️ ... See MoreSee Less
I’m so sorry to hear this. She has contributed so much for all of us 😢
I was approached by a super nice lady name Cheryl Smith Roy about her company. She is the owner of @Cheroy Porcelain Painting.
I am hoping she will be a vendor at our convention in March of 2022 in Arlington,Texas.

Sounds (and looks) like a great idea!!
Thank you all!
China painters are so generous with their time and talent. That was an excellent demo. Thank you so much.
Lovely luster ornaments! Thank you for sharing!
Thanks for “sprinkling”
From Bridget: Thank you everyone for your kind words . My brother Michael has left this world behind and was welcomed into the arm of Jesus. He loved you all so much. Please know his greatest joy was being able to teach and share his love of painting. Would you be so kind as to share a photo or two with me that you have taken through the years. It would bring me comfort. Thank you for loving him so. 💔
@Bridget Brecheen ... See MoreSee Less
Hi Bridget, your brother was an amazing artist and a great teacher... But most of all, he was so much fun to be around. As they say in the south, he was a mess 😂. My favorite part of seeing him was playfully insulting him and getting it thrown right back me . 😂 Was so glad I got to see him one last time at Caz. Michael, I guess God finally girded His loins enough to handle you so he stopped sending you back. God speed, Bubba!! Paint with the angels! 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖
Michael and I used to exchange art yearly. He loved my portraits and I loved his grapes. I donated a piece of his to the Grapevine Porcelain museum years ago because they did not have one of his pieces. It is one of their Master’—room pieces. My Nephew and Michael were close years ago, also. He was very sad to hear of Michael’s passing. God bless you all.
I am so very sad to hear about Michael. He made porcelain art so much fun, I took his seminars every chance I got. He will be greatly missed.
I was so blessed to have Michael for a friend and teacher. I studied with him 8-10 times, neither of us slept good so we got up early in the morning and talked about family over breakfast. He was very proud of his loved ones. The art world has lost a kind, generous and loving teacher. I have lost a dear friend. He was loved by everyone that was blessed to have known him. The world is poorer for him being gone. God bless Michael.
I also took a class with Michael at Caz and so glad I did. I found him kind, very generous, and when he liked you, your were a friend for life. He was a gentle man and a gentleman. When I think of Michael I will remember his million dollar smile, he will be missed. My thoughts to his family.
Deepest sympathy. Unfortunately I never had an opportunity to take a class with Michael but with every teacher I took a class with, usually Michael’s name came up, praising his art ability.
Rejoicing for Michael and sincere condolences to you. He was a good man and I know he loved his sister. God bless you.
Such a genuinely nice person with a huge talent. He will be greatly missed.
My deepest condolences 💐 I don’t have a picture, but I do have a very special memory of how we met. It was back in June, this year, on the plane to CAZ. By one of those “coincidences” that are in fact synchronicities, we sat side by side. He said he knew I was a China painter from the start and that I “smelled divine”. I just couldn’t believe my luck of finally meeting him 🥰 He was an extraordinary artist, with a funny and sweet personality. Michael is whole again now ❤️ Blessings of peace to his sister and family 🙏🙏🙏
This painting was a gift to me from the Texas State Federation of Porcelain Art Clubs for having served as the PAC Magazine Editor in 2017-2018. It was beautifully painted by Michael Turner. It hangs above the fireplace in our home. I will always treasure it as well as the classes where I learned from Michael and his friendship.
Tybee Island, GA, 2013
🙏 🙏 🙏
From his sister: He has finished his race on this earth. He is now healed. I will miss you so. 💔
UPDATE- Dear friends , thank you for all of your prayers and kind words.
From the state:
Michael passed around 12:30 am. A true person to all of us. He will be greatly missed. ... See MoreSee Less
I only ever got to paint with him once but I loved it. He was awesome and a true artist and friend.
My heart is broken in the loss of our dear friend. Michael is now in the arms of God and no longer suffering. My prayers are with Bridget and may God wrap his arms around her and comfort her during this time. We will miss Michael’s smile, his laugh and most if all just him. We love you.
It saddens me so to hear of Michael’s passing. I know he is rejoicing in heaven with our Lord & with his beloved mother. I will always treasure our times of being in class with him, our phone visits & our texting! He was a great friend, an amazing & gifted artist! May God comfort his family, friends & his fellow porcelain artist friends with beautiful & fond memories! ❤️🙏❤️
Condolences to the family prayers for healing My wife Alyce and my self enjoyed the time he was in our convention he would take your plate and pushed paint here and there and all of sudden it looked so mush different Rest In Peace in the House of Our Lord till we meet again
My deepest sympathy to his family. He was such a special man, excellent artist, and exceptional teacher. I just loved painting with him 💔🙏💔
I feel so fortunate to have been in his classes with my Mom. Michael was a very special person and had a strong faith. I know he is with the Lord. ❤️🙏
RIP, Michael. My regret is that I did not have a chance take a class from him! My big loss! He was such a great painter. Will be sorely missed.
Sorry for your loss lifting you and the family in prayers 🙏 I never got to meet him but from what my China Painting ladies have said he was a great gentleman
I never met Michael, but heard all wonderful things about him and saw his amazing art. He will be a great loss to the porcelain world. So glad you were able to say your goodbyes to him. I have prayed everyday for Michael with hopes that God would heal him. Today’s reading in the Bible was from the first letter of Paul to the Thessalonians (4:13-18). May this scripture bring much comfort to you and your family. I am deeply sorry for your loss. May Michael’s memories live within your heart and mind forever!
So sorry to his family and friends for your loss. He will be missed by so many people.
Great artist and teacher. Always a pleasure to be in his classes. Have beautiful pieces to treasure.
Tears of Memories. I painted with Michael in Florida at the home of Artis Reis.....RIP MICHAEL
I’m sad, but somewhat relieved for Michael. It’s been a hard 3 yrs. A gallant hero 💕💕
My deepest sympathy to the family. May he rest in peace.
May your soul Rest In Peace. You left a great legacy for all to enjoy.
Thoughts and prayers for Michael and his friends and family. He will be missed by so many.
He lives with us every day through his art work.
He was so much to so many💕
Una perdida para la pintura sobre porcelana
So sorry for your loss
The world is a sadder place without Michael….
Que en paz descanse, un abrazo a su familia, alumnas, amigos. QEPD 🖤
A dear old friend. His voice soothed me. Former smoking buddy, we shared many a Marlboro together. In fact, that's how we met, outside at a Texas show a very long time ago, when he was thin, had hair, & was ALWAYS the handsomest man in the room! Even our dogs were cousins. My frequent Banquet "date". The HOURS we've spent in kiln rooms together all over the country. Endless coffees & more than our fair share of champagne. I am so mad he didn't get to experience his 60's. It's a great decade & he missed all of it. And now we're just supposed to let him go. Blessings on his soul & those he leaves behind. Say hi to Elva Leins for me, Michael.
😥 I am sorry for ur loss . Bless the departed soul 🙏

5:30 am this Sunday morning his sister message he is still with us. He has amazing strength
Dear Friends. Long story short - In the effort of a friend comforting family and friends there was a misunderstanding of Michael’s status. Somewhere in the communication his status was understood to be deceased and at this point on August 28, Saturday night at 10:30 pm he has not passed away, but according to his sister he is in a drug induced state. I am sorry for the confusion, it was just a misunderstanding and we need to make sure we keep him and his sister Bridget in our prayers.
Praying for Michael and his sister🙏🙏🙏 I was a Privileged to have taken several classes with Michael, through our club. Just love him, his personality, his magnificent talent, and his willingness to share all his painting tips❤️🙏❤️🙏❤️
His talent, his love for people, his personality make him one of a kind! May God welcome him gently into his new home!🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️
Was praying his sister would make it to be by his side. Continued prayers.
Thanks for keeping us in the loop. Such a sad time
It's reported he's awake and talking this morning. ..
Prayers for Michael and his sister.🙏💕
I’m so grateful Bridget made it there to be with him. Love you kids💕💕🙏🙏🙏 and praying
I ask each one of you to stop and take time to PRAY for our dearest friend Michael Turner. We just received a note from his sister that they are administrating morphine. He is going to a a marvelous place to meet our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
“Dear friend crossing over ...we give God the glory.Hallelujah ♥️”
Michael you are one of the very best artist, friends and person we all know. With all our hearts you will truly be missed.
I speak for everyone when I say " You are so loved by all of us."
Prayers are needed from all.
Fly High my friend, Michael, we will see you again.

Always standing for truth and doing the right thing. A heart full of compassion and discernment. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of the saints. We all celebrate your life Michael Turner. I count you as a dear brother.✝️
Please keep his sister Bridget in your prayers as she deals with this. She has been a rock in his life since this ordeal started. RIP Michael. We love you so much and Ill see you on the other side. Love to you.
My heart breaks for Michael and his sister at this time. May God wrap his arms around both of them and make Michael’s last days on earth comfortable. We love you Michael and will always miss you.
So sorry to hear about Micheal. He was an amazing artist with a wicked sense of humor. I know teaching the art that he loved kept him going. Huge loss for our porcelain community.
I met Michael Turner on one of my demos at Lubbock. He was excited as was going to do his first demo on Malachite at the Houston Convention. We were friends for many years. He taught one of his first seminars for our club. My daughters and husband loved Michael. He was fun, a great cook and fabulous teacher. I will miss him greatly. Praying for his family and friends left behind. His last words to me is how tired he was. Rest my friend.
Heaven will gain an amazing artist. Prayers that God puts his arms of peace and comfort around him and his sister.
My deepest sympathies to the family and friends of this wonderful artist and man..
I’m so heart broken, Michael is very special to my family. I met him in Lubbock, he was a visitor at the Caprock club, Edith Collins was demonstrating. The rest is history. Such a hero and master of art. 🙏💕💕🙏🙏🙏
Thank you Michael for your contribution to our art. It will live on. God go with you! 💗
Thank you everyone for your kind words . My brother Michael has left this world behind and into the arm of Jesus. He loved you all so much. Please know his greatest joy was being able to teach and share his love of painting. Would you be so kind as to share a photo or two with me that you have taken through the years. It would bring me comfort. Thank you for loving him so. 💔
It was a blessing to know Michael and he will be missed in so many ways. All who knew him have great memories. My sympathy to his family. Michael is someone you never forget and will always put a smile on your face with fond memories.
Bridget I did not know your brother, but I lost a younger brother to brain cancer last year. I am so sorry for your loss. Love, Bea
Michael had the AWSOME voice! I will always remember it and the beautiful pieces he painted. He shared himself to benefit us all. He was so special to me a basket full of tears on this day the Lord has made. You are missed and always will be! Your voice will always be remembered.
Such a talented artist! His works will live on....
I love you Michael. I always pray for your recovery. God be with you and hold you tight in His arms.
It was a blessing to know this man and call him friend. God speed my friend, you will be missed by all that knew you.
Prayers and hugs to all!!! We are losing such a great artist!!!

Happy Mothers day to all of you! With lots of love... Donna
Celebrate moms that
They’re the women who consistently care for their families. The ones navigating busy schedules, messy rooms, and sometimes, empty homes. They’re the women who mentor others with love, and who lead others with compassion. And they’re the women who keep showing up—even when life gets hard.
These women show us what it means to be a Mom. They are worthy of being loved, known, and celebrated.
Today is a great day to tell a mom in your life how much you appreciate her. Take a moment to thank God for the moms He’s placed around you, and then share this special Verse Image with someone who inspires you. ... See MoreSee Less
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mom’s and especially you, Donna Rasco Castle.

I took a class, but was told it only worked on glass. I have taught it to my students, but we have only done it on glass. They loved it and are still painting on bottles. I have some instructions, if you want them. Was also told to use rectified turpentine. Will try it on porcelain since Cheryl said it worked!!!
They are tricky and have a tendency to chip off if fired in a small kiln. My teacher 30 years ago used them. Fire in a large kiln an let it cool completely. Fire to 018. If they are hard add turpentine to reconstitute them. Too much oil causes them to run or chip off.

Looking to come to Texas for classes or a porcelain art show. Have been painting for years.
I am looking for a club near Hurst, as well as a teacher fairly close to me.
Funny II put my name here and it disappeared. How? Thought you wanted teachers to post here. Am I wrong?
Wanted to let everyone know we are hosting our 1st General Board Meeting by Zoom in April.
April 10, 2021 at 10 am
I will post a link when we get closer.
We will elect our new officers and install at the meeting. I look forward to seeing everyone.
I will be sending out the information to each club president as well.

Update on Candy Bunnell Ferren from George and also a small message from her this morning but she needs to rest, stay strong and get better soon. She’s really sick. She doesn’t have COVID which I was not expecting that because she is very diligent with being safe from that😁
From George Kiss ... Candy was admitted to the icu at Cedar Park Regional...my daughter is a supervisor for the icu so she will get some extra attention...she is having some issues keeping her blood pressure up..her kidney function was low..no estimate for discharge..she is feeling a little better.. will try to keep all informed of what I know....
I’ll check Facebook later today but now I’m out to take care of some issues with my house. Hope everyone is safe, warm and continue to stay diligent with Covid still here!!
Carol DeWind if you and your husband can get an email to everyone in our porcelain club I would appreciate it. No everyone checks Facebook.

I have been admiring this artist for a while. So I want to share a post she put up yesterday about some classes she is doing.
Nancy Benedetti is an extremely talented artist. Go look at her profile photos of her sculpture work.
Thank you Nancy for letting me share! ... See MoreSee Less

Been wanting to take from her! Just can’t get together at the same time same place! One day hopefully.
Great work ladies x

Nancy is excellent
Many dear friends in that group!!!
I have been asked if I knew where to get a list of all schools?
So can I get everyone to post your schools, classes, teachers, conventions, demos. If you have a flyer please post.
Clubs if you are having seminars and need participation, post here and let everyone know.
People are wanting to paint, so please share.
Please do not post negative comments. I understand some do not feel safe to get out, some want everyone to wear mask, etc. We are all adults and can make decisions based on ourselves. This is information that has been asked for. ... See MoreSee Less

What a great week so far. Mary Seehagen is visiting several clubs in Texas. She is from Caro, Michigan.
This is my first time to paint with her and I will tell you, she is just lovely!
I wanted to share her picture, a school she will be having in November 2021 and some wonderful pieces of artwork. Yes, she is selling any of these pieces.
Her artwork is fabulous. I do encourage any clubs who might be interested next year in booking her to call Vicki Dean. She visits several clubs and maybe you can get your club into the rotation.
I hope enjoy. ... See MoreSee Less
We're fortunate to have Mary in Michigan. I attended her workshop on chickadees and learned so much from this lovely lady. It had been on my bucket list and worth every minute!
It was a challenge this year in booking Mary due to Covid but 4 clubs were able to book her. I try to book her during club’s meeting time but that doesn’t always work. So if your club can be flexible it certainly helps in booking. Mary likes to come in Feb. My number is in the Texas yearbook.❤️
I loved her class. Be sure to pick up her graphite. It's awesome!
Mary will be the out of state Guest Artist next year for the SFPAC of Texas Convention along with in state artist. Janet Nelson.
This snow storm coming just knocked out our seminar Mon and Tues for the Ft Worth club. Soooo disappointed!! BUMMER!!!
She is a very lovely lady and talented! Carry’s great blank China to.
We use a lot of her studies! Great artist and teacher
Beautiful artist and beautiful pieces!
I love them all!
So happy that everyone is having a great time painting with Mary! She’s a very knowledgeable & skillful teacher! ❤️❤️❤️
So very much enjoyed demo. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks. I recently got Mary's book with all the design information but it helps to have her explain it.
Wish you could get rid of the white band in the middle of the video.
She is such a great teacher
Wish I was there!
Learned so much. Thanks for sharing
Hope you flew Donna?
