Method

I generally come to the studio with ideas and reference materials, but as work develops often the clay suggests new directions. I build sculptures using clay coils and some slabs. I carve and model the details. Most often I bisque fire the work before I apply any finish, but sometimes I use colored slip on greenware. After I apply glazes and oxides to the bisqueware, the sculptures are taken to a higher temperature in a second firing to completely melt the silica in the clay and fuse the chemicals in the finish. This glaze firing makes the clay non-porous. Lately I have been working with durable air dried clay and cold finishes.

Education

Lisa Lincoln grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia and began taking classes at the Cheltenham Center for the Arts when she was four years old. She moved to New York City to attend Barnard College and graduated magna cum laude in 1979. In 1986 she earned a master's degree from Pratt Institute. She has taken courses at the Art Students League, the School of Visual Arts, the Fashion Institute of Technology, and Greenwich House Pottery. She learned a lot about creative aging group work by participating in the Winter 2015 Training Institute of Lifetime Arts in NYC. She currently crafts her sculptures at her home in Brooklyn, NY.
