About the Artist
Lori Katz is a studio artist working in clay and mixed-media painting. She is known for the striking strength and simplicity of her work. Her current body of work is an exploration of surface and texture.

Her pieces are included in the permanent collection of the US Embassy in Bandar Seri Begawan, the Racine Art Museum, the IBM Corporation, Amazon Web Services, New York Presbyterian Hospital and in numerous private homes and collections.
Lori’s work can be seen on television and in movies; most recently in Succession, Inventing Anna and Maggie’s Plan.
Lori maintains a studio at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, VA.
“I am intrigued by contrast, the play of dark against light, the pull of empty space against the inclination to fill it up, the placement of line and shape, balance. Several years ago, I began working almost exclusively in a palette of black and white in a conscious effort to simplify process and design. Color has found its way back in and my work continues to evolve. And I have learned that in the end, process is never simple and good design is always balanced and strong."
“The act of giving form to my ideas brings me enormous satisfaction. That others want to experience my work, want to bring it into their homes and their lives, validates and completes my process. More importantly, it builds a tangible connection between maker and audience that begins as an attraction to an object and becomes an appreciation of materials and process, and an understanding that a human being is an invaluable tool. I love what I do! I fall asleep each night thinking about what I’ll make the next day; I wake up itching to get into the studio..."
