Lisa Orr: juror...and workshop
Studio potter, Lisa Orr works from her studio in Austin, Texas. She teaches, shows internationally and has presented numerous workshops (we're having our own with Lisa on Saturday, August 29, 2015!) "She creates sumptuous utilitarian low-fire pottery for use in daily life. Each piece is an individual artwork, rich with color and texture. Though rooted in the deep history of ceramics, her forms are fluid and often gently asymmetrical: a combination of the clay’s natural expression and her own inspiration in the moment. Low relief decorations follow soft slip layers in suggesting a sky, coral reef, or flowers in bloom". Find more of her work at: www.lisaorr.com
