more about the studio
dirty lizard studio is a place and ongoing project started by two south floridian ceramicists, liza quinn furr and nick abrami in summer 2023. after teaching in a lot of different places over the past decade or so, we decided to bring our skills together and build a place to rest, to learn, and to create; a third space, in between consumption and production.
we are open to beginners and experienced makers alike ❤️ and love to share what we’ve learned with fellow creatives. ask as many questions as you’d like.
now, about our the location…
our studio is in Little Ranches, Hollywood, FL, on Taíno, Miccosukee, and Seminole land.
we’re located within a half-acre food forest on a plot of farmland that supplied 1920s, 30s, and 40s-era Hollywood with fresh avocados and citrus —
depending on the season, we have starfruit, avocados, japoticaba, pineapples, so many tomatoes, a perennial herb garden — and we’re pretty good at sharing the bounty, too, if you’d like something to munch on. all we ask is that you come prepared to meet mother nature, in all her glory.
anywho, this place is mostly about clay, nice people, and handmade pots to hold good food — other things may crop up soon, we can’t just do one thing, but for now, we’ll be here in the studio (wheel)throwing our lives our lives away…
when is the studio open?
we’re open by appointment only most days of the week.
please, no surprises 🙏🏻 text or call us before dropping in — 954 459 8006.
what kind of classes do you guys teach?
between the teachers here and the experience we share, one or all of us can show you how to do most things when it comes to clay.
we teach the basics mostly right now, but more in-depth workshops are coming up soon.
can I bring a friend? how many?
yes, we love making new friends! we have room for four during wheelthrowing sessions and space at the handbuilding table for six. let us know if you’d like to schedule or book a class anytime.
okay so what do you mean outdoors?
dirty lizard studio is a certified wildlife habitat, complete with the birds, reptiles, plants, fruit trees, a watering hole, etc.
come prepared for a preserved biosphere in the middle of the city.
what should we wear?
dress down, dress comfortably, dress for a MESS! we have aprons for you, fans to keep the bugs away, and plenty of shade makes it cool, but we’re still in florida.
closed-toed shoes (not sandals, friends), an old shirt, and long pants are highly recommended.
of course!!!!! this is a private gathering space, bring whatever makes ya happy.
how do i glaze my pots when they’re finished?
you can schedule with us separately or head on over to glazy sunday at the studio on first and third sundays.
can i buy pottery at the studio?
please do oh my god we are drowning over here
can i work with you guys at the studio 👉👈
yes, to avoid any weird feelings about maybe wanting the house to ourselves we offer day rates that include full access to studio, equipment and tables outside of classes and firing for work made while you’re here.
2-4hrs — $25
4-8hrs — $40
monthly — $160
we’ve also got space in the kiln for home potters in the area who need to fire their work.
where the heck is dirty lizard studio located? is there parking?
we’re located at 2330 monroe street in hollywood, florida in the backhouse.
you’re looking for a jungle house with a gravel driveway. street-parking is available if the driveway is full.
