Lionel Clark is a 3-D artist that specializes in ceramics. He has over 20 years of teaching experience and has been creating art his entire life. His works begin as wheel-thrown or hand-built forms and are then heavily altered. Pieces are then decorated with custom stencils, screen prints, hand-painted, and fired multiple times. He presents yearly at the Mississippi Art Education Association conferences and twice for the National Art Education Association. He is currently the Art Department chair at Gautier High School. He works hard to hone his craft and participates in many shows each year.
