That's Artsy is proud to feature potter Lisa Valley. She's a Minneapolis, MN native. Here is her artist statement:

"My creative practice is part meditation, part creative expression. The tactile quality of clay grounds me. I let my mind wander while I create shapes on the wheel. Then I blanket the surface of my pieces with drawings and patterns. I'm attracted to both geometric and organic patterns—my pieces are covered in lines, shapes, flowers, leaves, and the occasional animal. I transform everyday, functional pottery into objects which bring joy, levity, beauty, and humor to daily living. Because food is more delightful when presented on handmade tableware."

Lisa’s work will be featured at the Kohler Arts Center One & Only Show from Mid-October to January. Lisa plans to show her work at the St Paul American Craft Show in April 2019.
