Things have come full circle for Lisa Hepburn of Hepburn Ceramics. After studying art in college, Lisa took a fourteen-year hiatus from her craft to pursue a teaching career until she reinvented her ceramics artistry a year and a half ago. Looking at Lisa’s pottery today, you can see a similar circular pattern in her work. The signature rounded impressions featured on her functional goods are balanced with muted tones and the clean lines and silhouettes of mid-century aesthetics. Her hand-dipped glazing gives organic relevance to the fired, white clay. Her space, not unlike the pieces she creates, is clean, functional and representative of her subtle style. Handmade forms for molding her creations rest elegantly on wooden shelves. Pale-colored, hand-carved stamps whimsically grace her workstation where an airy, modern-style chair sits.
