Lizzie McCleskey is an Art major at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. Her education in ceramics began in elementary school with her work at Zoli Studio, under potter and sculptor Evelyn Jordan in New Orleans, Louisiana.  As a college student, Lizzie continued her ceramic education with Jordan upon receiving Sewanee’s Powell internship and later through the University of Georgia, while studying abroad in Cortona, Italy.  Her most recent work has been under the guidance of Sewanee’s Archie Stapleton.  After graduation Lizzie plans on continuing her work in sculpture through various studio assistantships and fellowship programs before pursing graduate school. “…while the works push against rituals of presentation and the resulting objectification that ensues, I must acknowledge my existence within these very same systems, most recently as a participant in Debutante society” – McCleskey
