LAMBERT, JUSTIN
LAMBERT, JUSTIN
FLORIDA
An interest in objects that serve a specific purpose motivates me to make functional pottery. I am also interested in how pottery can inherently initiate a certain situation with a singular user and within a group. It is through the grouping of particular pots that I am able to suggest a special moment to occur.

BIOGRAPHY
Justin Lambert received his BFA from Florida Atlantic University 1999, and his MFA from Indiana University 2003. Justin has spent the last 15 years firing utilitarian pottery in wood burning kilns. Investigations into reduction cooling variations in the teardrop anagama adds dramatic decoration to the subtle curves in his pots. In addition to running the studio, Live Oak Pottery, Justin maintains an apprentice program, Chairs the ceramics department at the Lighthouse Art Center, teaches ceramics part time at Palm Beach State College, and travels for firing workshops. He enjoys spending time with his wife Andrea, and their dog Ozzie.
