CIY Instructor

Laurie Baron

As the daughter of a life-long artist I understood the need for a creative outlet – something to take my mind off life for a while.

I am a recovering Interior Designer & corporate real estate professional who has embraced pottery as my creative outlet.

I have been learning and practicing pottery for over 12 years. I not only love to create functional (and sometimes non-functional) pieces, but I am addicted to all things pottery tools – and tools not created for pottery but are useful nonetheless. I love showing fellow potters the latest tools/gadgets I’ve discovered.
