|After dabbling with pottery on an occasional basis since she was a child, Lois Kupersmith became involved with pottery as a 'serious' hobby in 1986 and studied at the Westchester Art Workshop. This love has developed into a full time career. Lois creates the artwork with a variety of techniques, always diversifying and trying something new.
Every piece is individually wheel thrown and hand built by Lois - no production techniques such as jiggering and casting are used. With much of the art being adorned with hand built fish, lizards and turtles, the work is slow, but every piece takes on its own unique personality.
After opening the NJM Gallery in the spring of 1993, the Kupersmith's now spend most of their time running the gallery - a 7 day a week job which leaves little opportunity to create new pottery. However, as time permits, Lois still enjoys working with pottery. In addition, she creates flameworked glass fish bead earrings and necklaces which can be seen in our Portsmouth, NH gallery.
