About Liz Langyher
Liz Langyher is a Midwest/East coast ceramic artist who works primarily in ceramic installation.
She graduated with a BFA, focusing in ceramics, from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2016. She has worked with several art non-profit organizations, including Haystack School of Crafts, Baltimore Clay works, and Watershed Center for Ceramic Art. She was an artist-in-residence at the Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Center, the Red Lodge Clay Center, and the Medalta Historic Clay District.
As a ceramic artist, she is interested in the collision of human environments, the systems we use to designate function in our landscapes, the semiotics of objects, and the task of living ecologically. This overarching theme takes inspiration from a childhood traveling across I-70; observing the changing landscape and documenting the radical mundane structures that line American roadways. Recently, she has been focusing on the creation of a new trilogy of work focused on pattern and landscape.
