|Melanie Close Liotta has a BA in Art (1970) and has been working in clay ever
since. She worked exclusive in ^10 reduction until the mid-90s when she started
experimenting with colorful design in ^6 oxidation.
Melanie uses intensely colored underglazes on white or dark stoneware clay. Her
signature pieces are using these underglazes over a deep-red stoneware clay on
which she carves through the underglazes using a technique called ‘sgraffito’ to
reveal the dark clay.
Melanie moved to Lake County in 1984 and lived in Cobb until the Valley Fire.
She now lives in Riviera West.
