About the Artist

Lori Gardinier works out of her home studio and has been working with clay for almost 25 years. She practiced at several area studios including Mudflat, Mudville and Indigo Fire. Additionally, she has developed her skills at studios based in London, Cholula, Mexico and Chautauqua, New York. She produces both functional and decorative wares, and particularly enjoys utilizing underglaze transfers on mid-fire pieces.
The majority of my work is wheel thrown on mid-fire clay (cone 5-6). Generally my glaze technique consists of two categories: mid-fire functional wares with food safe flux glaze or rice paper underglaze design transfers that are covered with a food safe clear glaze.
