I love to create functional pottery that is well-balanced and pleasing to the eye and touch. I get a great deal of satisfaction from creating pieces enjoyed by people for daily use. I strive to make pottery that works as well as it looks. When you pour tea from one of my teapots, it needs to feel right. The balance should be perfect. Form needs to follow function so that the resulting work is as beautiful as it is useful.

I currently live in Tucson, Arizona after living in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California for over twenty years where I was inspired by the beauty and quiet of the mountains. I find working in my desert studio equally inspiring.

I have been working in ceramics for over 35 years. I am largely self-taught. After learning the basics in a beginning wheel throwing class, I learned pottery from doing. I learned by making things over and over, analyzing what feels and looks right, and seeing what works and what doesn't. I have since supplemented that practice with attending workshops and classes in Northern California and Japan as well as here in Tucson. I am a member of SACA, Southern Arizona Clay Artists.

Most of the pottery that I produce has an intended purpose. Usefulness becomes an inseparable element of the beauty of the piece. More About my studio and process can be found at www.etsy.com/shop/lomaprietapottery/about .
