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.

(e)liza quinn furr is a lifelong floridian, multidisciplinary artist and lizard lover with a decade-long relationship with clay. she began making pots and throwing on the wheel in 2014 while studying at the university of north florida, where she earned a B.A. in sociology with a minor in ceramic arts. she taught at several art studios and museums throughout broward county before launching dirty lizard studio in august 2023.

liza usually pinches and coils clay into everyday objects (talking about a real form-and-function type of person) but occasionally can be found hopping on the wheel when she’s looking for a little excitement. 

what’s class like?

kids get four chances to make as much as they can — could be bowls, cups, plates, etc — and they’ll pick their favorite to add color to at the end. 

we’ll demonstrate how to center, pull, and shape a soft clay, and then use sculpting and texture tools to personalize each piece. 

parents + guardians are welcome to sit back & relax, or join in on the fun, too.
