Studio Instructors

Alex Adams
Alex has over 12 years experience working in the field of ceramics. Putting designs into production at the pottery wheel is his focus. Articulated forms are designed with a function in mind; wooden potter’s tools and artist-designed stamps bring each piece to life. Alex sells his work at local retail shops and boutiques in Louisville. Alex earned a BA in ceramics from Berea College in 2008.

Suzanne Adams
Suzanne Adams has worked as an artist, educator, and community activist in Louisville, KY since 1980 when she moved from Minneapolis, MN. As an artist, Suzanne built a strong reputation which rose to a national level in the 90’s - 2000‘s. Works made of multi-media; including cast paper, paint, ceramic, wood, and wire, were presented at public and university exhibitions. 
Suzanne earned her BFA degree in sculpture/painting from the University of Louisville with a graduate degree in education.

 

Laura George Lynch
Laura works in porcelain making functional pots. Adding oxide, under-glaze, and glaze designs to masked-off sections of her wheel thrown pottery exposes the natural beauty of naked clay. This surface decoration reflects the shapes and lines found in the pot itself, resulting in a subtle combination of gesture and balance. Laura is inspired by nature and mid-century modern design that leads her away from traditional pottery aesthetics. Laura earned a BFA in ceramics from UofL in 1998.

 

Kristen Vittitow
Kristen is a Louisville native who has a wide range of interests in art and creative pursuits. In 2012 she earned BA degrees in Studio Arts and Art Education at the University of Kentucky. She then became an art teacher at Stonewall Elementary in Lexington, Kentucky. After 2 years of teaching she returned to Louisville to follow her passion for creative arts. Experimentation and play are center to both her teaching and artistic philosophies.
