Mark Nafziger has maintained Brush Creek Pottery at Sauder Village, a living history museum in Archbold, Ohio, since 1981. Intent on becoming a math teacher when he started at Goshen College in Indiana, Mark soon discovered clay, and graduated with dual math and art degrees. Working with stoneware (and sometimes porcelain), he enhances the surfaces of his pots with slip trailing and carving. His work has been featured in publications and exhibitions across the country.
Lisa Orr has been creating highly decorative, functional ceramics for over 40 years. She received a BFA from the University of Texas at Austin in 1983, then an MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 1992. Orr’s work is formed in molds and/or on the wheel, then embellished with stamps, slips, sprigs and multiple layers of glazes. She has taught numerous workshops and has participated in national and international exhibitions.
