Artist paints porcelain plates for display at Pences’ residence

COLUMBUS, Ind. — When a Rockcreek Township resident stepped away from competing in pool tournaments, she was ranked 17th in the world by the Women’s Professional Billiards Association.

Diana Minor has been inducted into two halls of fame honoring world-class billiard players, including one in Las Vegas, Nevada.

But now, the southeast Bartholomew County woman has acquired a different ambition that has allowed her to become a part of American history.

Minor, 60, is among an elite group of porcelain artists selected to create 100 dessert plates featuring state flowers for the Vice President’s Residence in Washington.
