After 30 plus years as a Soil Scientist for the US Department of Agriculture, Lisa retired this fall to spend more time with her pottery. With a craving to work with clay, she started taking adult education courses while living in Maine. Just as Lisa loves to share the vegetables that grow in her garden, Krall loves sharing her pots with people that will use and enjoy them. No words are more welcomed by a potter than “it makes me happy every time I use my mug, bowl, plate, etc.”!
In 2004 Krall started Feats of Clay and sold her pottery for several years through Artists Open Studio of Northeastern Connecticut. She works in porcelain and stoneware, wheel throwing and hand building one-of-a-kind functional forms.
At Wesleyan Potters her work is high fired in gas kilns to cone 10 (up to 2381 degrees F). Most of her work at Spectrum Gallery is formed in porcelain and decorated with fanciful designs using hand-carved stamps and colored slips and under-glazes.
