Lorna Newlin has been a potter for 25 years.  In 2002 she left the world of corporate pottery and now has her own studio, Sausalito Pottery.  Her ceramic pieces range from functional dishware, sculptures, and commission pieces.

“Nature inspires me. I use ancient art forms such as Gyotaku and create unique ways to show the beauty of nature in my “fish” plates”. This evolved into pressing other images in clay, the beauty that is all around us if you only look. Creating Art is really about truly seeing. In addition to being a nature lover, I am also an open water swimmer (no wetsuit), and diver (yes, with wetsuit). I have been lucky enough to swim under the Golden Gate Bridge and dive for abalone along the Sonoma coast. So I have viewed nature such as jellyfish, seals, and fish up close. Recreating those inspirations in my artwork allows me to share my joy with others.”
