About the Artist
Lindsay Scypta holds a BFA in Art & Design from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University and a MFA from The Ohio State University. She was a recipient of the Toledo Museum of Art's Palmer Scholarship in 2016, supporting visual research in Paris, France and was awarded Emerging Artist by Ceramics Monthly in 2017. Working strictly with porcelain clay, the work is thrown, trimmed, altered and decorated, then fired to cone six. Much of Lindsay's MFA research was centered around not only the history of the table but also the development of laser cut tools, stamps, and molds that she continues to challenge and apply to her work.
