Raised in northwestern New Jersey, Renee LoPresti earned her BFA from Alfred University in 2009. Currently, Renee is a studio artist focusing on functional ceramics as a resident artist at Eye of the Dog Art Center in San Marcos, Texas. Each piece is carefully painted, incised, and slip trailed before being fired to cone 5 in an electric kiln. I love using layers of vivid colors over the iron-rich stoneware which allows the dark clay beneath to show through; indicating time and weathering. Through familiar imagery, I intend to convey bittersweet familiarity; cheerful colors and patterns backed by underlying feelings of loss and longing.

30 YEARS! Thank you!
