Lisa Orr is a professional potter and has been a student of ceramics for more than 40 years. After completing her MFA in 1992 at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, she received a Fulbright and an MAAA/NEA grant to continue her studies. Her work is shown in numerous public and private collections including the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, and the permanent collection of WOCEF in Korea. A full-time studio potter, she also teaches, lectures, and shows nationally and internationally.
Lisa Orr’s softly formed artworks for the table are inspired by the playful and abundant qualities of Mexican earthenware. They are finished with gestural animals, stamps, slips, sprigs and multihued glazes. The jeweltone color evokes a healthy garden in bloom.
