Ceramic Sculpture

Liisa Nelson is a 2018 MFA graduate of the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. She completed a post baccalaureate program at the University of Colorado Boulder (2015) and has a BFA in 3D Media from Pacific Lutheran University (2009). She has been teaching and working in ceramics for over a decade and has shown work in solo and group exhibitions across the United States. 

Nelson grew up in Montana in a place where people don’t often leave. Her father is a Lutheran minister and her mother is a nurse: body and soul. The studies of art, science, poetry and Daoism have been indispensable in her life and work. She is insatiably curious .
