Lisa Holt and Harlan Reano
Lisa Holt is the daughter of the late Inez Ortiz and niece of Virgil Ortiz, both of whom have helped and inspired Lisa in her pottery making. Lisa began making whimsical figures and has now progressed to beautifully coiled large jars. She uses all natural materials and those pieces are fired outdoors in the traditional manner. Sometimes we can see smoke clouds from being fired on a windy day. Lisa’s husband, Harlan Reano, paints the wonderfully precise and intricate designs on Lisa’s jars using the native wild spinach paint. Together they produce unique and elegant pieces.
