Lisa Buck
Afton, Minnesota

Lisa Buck lives in Afton, Minnesota, where she maintains her studio.  She holds a degree in art education, with a focus in ceramics, from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. A Jerome Foundation Ceramic Artist Grant recipient in 2003, Buck has also pursued individual ceramic studies in France and Morocco, where she lived for two years.  She notes:  “I grew up in a household that valued working with your hands; creating ‘something out of nothing’ my mother would say, and I find great pleasure in the routines, rhythms, and physical work of making pots.  For me, it is the perfect marriage between idea and action.”
