meet your teacher — liza (big lizard)

Liza Furr has been teaching the ways of clay since 2019.

gleaning from lived experiences as a self-proclaimed weirdo, and professional training with the NSU Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (NSU-CARD), Liza has developed a variety of methods to use clay as a guide and comfort for kids who may otherwise have a hard time in more stimulating environments.

everybody’s welcome here.

liza q. furr is a lifelong floridian, multidisciplinary artist and lizard lover. she started working with clay in 2014 while studying at the university of north florida, where she earned a B.A. in sociology with a minor in ceramic arts, though there’s nothing minor about it …

liza taught at several art studios and museums through out broward county before launching dirty lizard studio in june 2023. she usually pinches and coils clay in functional objects, occasionally hopping on the wheel when she’s looking for a little excitement.
