Clay Sculpture meets Function
Growing up in an artistic family, Lorrie Goss originally attended Grand Valley State University for her BA degree in Art.
She had taken a 3-D sculptural design class which changed her direction completely. From that one class she began to incorporate design, with water fountains. She creates original fountains that can be placed in any location throughout the home or office which includes pools or lanais, or any room with an electrical outlet.
By 2011, she had accumulated more equipment , prompting an expansion of her own clay studio at her home in Port St. Lucie, Florida, which includes two kilns, and a gallery showroom at Main Street Studio and Gallery in Vero Beach, Florida. While it took some time to get the studio up and running, her name and work received more and more notice.
Today, with the business Clay Fountains By Lorrie, she devotes her time between the ceramic studio and attending art shows and galleries in towns throughout Florida. Her background in design and bright personality allow her to produce works that are as functional as they are original, custom, captivating and joyful
Lorrie was recently showcased in the Sandpiper Bay Neighbors Magazine April 2016 edition as a ceramic sculptural artist along with her husband Ken. She was also showcased in Vero Beach Magazine as the featured artist at Main Street Studio and Gallery.
She received 1st Place awards at the Indian River Birding Festival and the Hibiscus Festival Art and Fine Craft Show in 2017.
