Lisa is a local Asheville potter who features maple leaves on her ceramics. She is self taught with over 20 years of experience. Working in her studio, Lisa throws, glazes and fires all of her pieces by hand herself.
To create her lovely leaf pottery, she uses high fire stoneware and a creative glazing process that includes pressing and actual leaf into each piece. Her work is inspired by her breathtaking surroundings of her native mountains.
Enjoy the simple beauty of her work and you will see how well it blends in with many other dish colors you may already have at home.
