  • Liz Lewandowski
    Liz has a BA from Concordia College, WI. She is an extremely talented hand-builder and sculptor. She has taught classes for CCC since 2014, many of her own unique design. Liz is also the head of glaze mixing and kiln operation.  Thanks to her we have 21 hand-mixed glazes, 8 slips and 4 oxide washes. In addition she keeps 3 kilns firing up to 3 times per week, all while keeping a wicked sense of humor. “I’m an Illustrator by trade but have found a special place in my heart for ceramics. I enjoy making 3d pieces of art and then incorporating drawings and designs in the the surface. I specialize in dragons, monsters and all things nightmarish!” Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lsquaredstudio/?hl=en
