Lisa Stinson earned her MFA in Ceramics from Rhode Island School of Design, a BFA in Ceramics from New York College of Ceramics at Alfred University and a BA in Psychology from Wells College. As an artist and educator, she has exhibited her work nationally, presented at multiple conferences and conducted numerous workshops in both ceramic practices and kiln building techniques and design.
Her current studio work investigates her interests in mark making, as it relates to surface, pattern and drawing. Her ideas address both utility and non-functional pursuits. With a continued commitment to materials research, Lisa has utilized this knowledge to expand her making vocabulary, firing methods and the rhythms of abstraction.
Stinson received the 2017 College of Fine and Applied Art Teaching Award of Excellence, has lead a Study Abroad Program to Spain in 2017 and 2018 and most recently created a new body of work in collaboration with Ken Carder for a solo exhibition at the William King Museum in Abingdon, Va.
