more about the studio
dirty lizard studio is a place and ongoing project by two south floridian ceramicists, liza quinn furr and nick abrami. together we have around 25 years of collective experience, and after teaching in a lot of different places over the past 10 or so years, recently decided to bring our skills home in june 2023.
we hope to offer a place to nourish, to rest, to learn, and to create, open to beginners and experienced makers alike.
our studio is located within a half-acre food forest on a plot of farmland that used to supply Hollywood with fresh avocados and citrus — at least, prior to several big hurricanes, a canker blight. now, 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.
more things coming. stay tuned ✌️
