Lisa Niver fell in love with clay while taking a full figure sculpture class at the University of Pennsylvania. After moving to San Francisco, she found a ceramics class in Golden Gate Park and learned how to throw. After years of classes, she began participating in the studio shows and selling her creations. Niver left to sail the seven seas and was able to visit artists around the world as she traveled. When she returned to Los Angeles after living in Asia, she again took classes and began exhibiting her work. She had a solo show of 50 pots as part of her 50 Things Before She was 50 project. You can find her functional pottery in Santa Monica at The Clayhouse and on Main Street in Park City at Artworks PC. View her art on Instagram and Facebook.
