"The ocean or the forest is where I can be lost and found all at the same time. Nature recharges my soul, and is the focus of my creations. I am extremely fond of realistic animal and human forms, as well as impressionistic paintings. With a BFA in Sculpture from Virginia Tech, I find creating art is a way of expressing what and how I see life, or at least a way of enjoying it. Sarcasm in life and art is always a "like" in my book. It has been a pleasure teaching, sharing, exploring, and just trying to make every day better than the last."
Peri is a ceramic artist from Kentucky who transplanted to Jacksonville in early 2019 and is loving every minute of it! She graduated from the University of Louisville with a BFA in 3D, allowing her to rotate between multiple mediums in her art. Her business and teaching focus is in clay.
Catch Peri at her studio or Atlantic Pottery Supply during the weekdays, and Riverside Arts Market on the weekends! Outside of pottery Peri busies herself with exploring the outdoors and visiting local restaurants and breweries!
Lizzie Scott graduated from the University of North Florida, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, in Spring 2020. Originally from England, she moved to Florida 12 years ago and has loved living here ever since. She started working with ceramics in 2017 and quickly fell in love with it. Specializing in painting and ceramics, she makes the desired form and then paints it using underglaze. With a love of nature, she themes her work around plants, fungi, and animals. Her functional ceramics tell a story using illustrations seen on her work. Lizzie incorporates a variety of techniques to create a unique style. During her free time, she is usually in the Atlantic Pottery Supply Studio. She enjoys relaxing, playing games, and sketching at zoos and aquariums.
Originally from Oregon, Randy moved to South Florida to begin his automotive career. After graduating from Atlantic Technical College in Pompano Beach, he moved to Jacksonville to work for BMW. Finally liberated of the juggle of school and work, he found himself with enough time to pursue the passion of ceramics he developed throughout high school. Setting up a studio in his studio apartment, Randy quickly fell in love with ceramics again and hasn't slowed down. When not teaching or creating you can find Randy skating the streets with his friends or tinkering with cars.
Christina is an Atlantic Beach native and graduate of the University of North Florida. She is a Cyber Security Risk manager by day and an avid potter by night. As a way to unwind, Christina rediscovered her love for ceramics right here at Atlantic Pottery Supply during a few classes. When not working, you can find her meticulously crafting in her garage studio creating fun and functional pieces. Outside of pottery, she loves mountain biking, tending to her garden, and taking long weekend trips in her van.
Mark is a native of Atlantic Beach and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of North Florida. He makes functional and sculptural pieces that explore visual depth and aim to ignite a sense of curiosity, both during the making process as well as with the finished product. He is passionate about traveling and engaging with new locations and experiences, which often informs new perspectives and ideas for making art. When not teaching, you can find Mark working in his home studio, exploring in nature, and spending time with friends and family.
