Lisa Brown developed an interest in pottery when she was given a small and lovely porcelain vase at the age of five. In 2005, sparked by a chance encounter while on the Durham Art Walk, Lisa began studying at community art studios. She continued her education by taking private lessons with Julie Olson and workshops at Claymakers, the John C. Campbell School, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, the Long Beach Island Foundation and Shakerag. Her primary interests are in form, function, and the natural beauty produced by skilled clay-handling processes. At the same time, Lisa enjoys trying out a wide variety of surface decoration techniques, including majolica, and particularly likes texture (carving, stamping, appliqué) for bringing the clay surface to life.
