Lawton Clites

I focus on making functional and attractive ceramic wares for real life daily use. I work primarily in stoneware, a type of ceramic known for its durability and rustic color palette. My work explores the intersection of line, form, and function, blending Eastern and Western traditions with occasional detours through the fanciful.

In addition to working in ceramics, I’m also a pottery technician and instructor here at Libertytown, and I truly enjoy helping my fellow artists bring their work to life. So if you ever have a question or need a hand, just let me know. I’m happy to be of assistance

Outside of Libertytown I also work in photography as well as wood crafts, and I can be found from time to time giving classes on different wood projects at the Fredericksburg Workshop.
