Lisa Bone has always had a creative side. She has worked with gourds, faux finishes, various crafts and home remodeling, but it's clay that consistently keeps her interested.
Lisa was first introduced to ceramics while attending college at the State University of New York at Oswego in the mid 80's. Until that time, she had never touched a piece of clay. She loved it, but did not get a chance to work with it again until she graduated, moved to California, got married and had two sons! She now has her own studio and spends as much time as she can honing her craft.
Lisa has learned different techniques from local pottery classes, books, online resources and workshops, and talking with other ceramists. She loves to try new techniques, but is especially drawn to Raku and the various types of Raku firing. The unpredictability and element of surprise that lends itself to Raku is always fun.
