Newlin has been creating pottery for over 25 years. In 2002 she followed her dream, left the corporate world and opened her own studio, Sausalito Pottery. She now splits her time between California, and Kailua, Hawaii, the best of both sides of the ocean. Lorna also teaches classes for adults and children.
