ACGA ARTIST OF THE MONTH
LIZ LAUTER

After teaching high school ceramics for the past 20 years in Marin County, I am focused on sculpting and hand building with earthy terra cotta clay glazed in white majolica and hand painted with colorful designs. I’m most inspired by the tree of life candelabras from Mexico, decorative folk art, flowers and plant forms. My tree of life sculptures, candelabras, menorahs and large serving platters serve as canvasses for my painting. I’ve considered myself a painter for most of my life, while Ceramics was a hobby. Now the two have merged in an exciting way.
