March's Featured Artist
Lisa Shepperd has been making pots since high school classes in Miami. She continued to study and create while pursuing degrees in French and Environmental Studies, before returning to Florida to raise a family. For several decades, she worked locally with a gas-soda kiln at Horse Creek Pottery, but is now altering her decoration techniques for electric firings. Lisa says, “My work begins on the wheel, but I often alter the form with handbuilt additions. I create distinctive decorations by painting with clay slips, as well as carving into the surface. I want to make functional art that people can use every day; all my pottery is food safe, and may be put in the dishwasher and microwave.” Her favorite pots tell a story with graphic or narrative designs reflecting her interest in Florida’s natural environment. Her goal is to make everyday objects that are useful, attractive and fun!View full profile
