Artist Bio

Hi, I'm Lauren and I'm the artist behind Litpottery.  I am an art educator, and I have been teaching art for 17 years.  I was assigned to teach Pottery in 2010, and I had little experience with the medium.  It was literally baptism by fire.  I entered the world of potter's wheels, manual kilns and glazing and oh boy...it was overwhelming!  I figured it out as I went along, and I fell in love with it.  There was trial, error, failure, and victories and I found myself always having fun with the material.

In 2018 I decided to give teaching a backseat and nurture the drive to create full-time.  Litpottery was born.  I started by creating teapots from literature, then I created Raku for a time, and now I own my studio equipment in my home creating whatever comes to mind.  I am currently teaching full-time at a local NJ high school, and I make pots for my live and online shows.  It is the perfect blend of life.  Thank you for reading.
