Lisa Bare Culp

Lisa Bare Culp is a clay artist and has been the owner of Bareclay since it was established in 1997. She is a 1993 graduate of the Columbus College of Art and Design in Fine Arts/Ceramics emphasis. The idea for Bareclay was always about sharing the good things about pottery with as many people as possible. The studio started with a potter's wheel in the attic of a rented apartment. Since then, Bareclay has offered art education to schools, programs for people with special needs, professional makers and hobbyists.
