Liza Bach Studios

Since the age of eight, Liza Bach has been obsessed with clay.  After receiving a B.A. from George Peabody College of Vanderbilt University in this medium and continuing with graduate work at Peabody and East Tennessee State University in glaze chemistry, photography and textiles, Liza began her professional foray into pottery.  In 1985, she relocated to the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee where she continues to create her dynamic pottery today.

Her accomplishments include being a field worker for the Tennessee Association of Craft Artists (TACA), working for a custom-color photographic lab, directing and teaching a crafts workshop program for adults and children at the Sevier County Cultural Arts Center, teaching at the Arrowmont School for Crafts upon occasion and serving as coordinator and weaving teacher for the Heritage Weavers School Association.

Two of Liza's most notable commissions belong to us all.  Liza completed a series of handcarved clay tiles with relief prints of natural objects that are along a nature trail for the physically challenged in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park - the first trail of its kind in our national park system.  And, installed in 1999 was a similar set of tiles created for the National Grove of State Trees at the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington, D.C.  A leaf tile and a text tile were made for each state tree with a second set of tiles being placed along the trail as the Grove develops.  View info about this at:   http://www.usna.usda.gov/Gardens/collections/grove.html

In the past she focused primarily on kitchen items and decorator objects, but, as a result of doing these large tile projects, Liza became interested in doing architectural tile work.  Now tiled fireplaces, kitchen backsplashes and bathrooms have become new options for her custom  designs.
