As someone with a case of the tactile munchies, Lo is all about introducing students to the medium and excitement of clay, particularly via the wheel, as a complex tool in order to tactilely discover the possibilities and boundaries of clay. The first ceramics class Lo took was in 1987 at the age of six, although it wasn’t until 30 years later that Lo dove back into playing with clay at Yavapai College. In 2019 she was reunited with the SAC ceramics department. In addition to teaching, you can find Lo tending to the needs of the studio, learning everything she can about ceramics, making at Reitz Ranch Center for the Ceramic Arts and working part time as a massage therapist. Lo appreciates how the nature of (clay) bodies inform and reflect the human experience. All her work is heavily weighted by the notion of purpose, therefore most of her ceramics are functional.
