Lindsay Scypta holds a BFA in Art & Design from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University and a MFA from The Ohio State University. She was an Artist-in-Resident at Clay Art Center in Port Chester, New York. Returning to Ohio in 2014 as an adjunct instructor at Owens Community College and Lourdes University, Lindsay continues to balance teaching and making. She had a solo show at Morean Center for Clay in 2015 and was a recipient of the Toledo Museum of Art's Palmer Scholarship, providing support to conduct
visual research in Paris, France. Her influences include the stone tracery of Gothic cathedrals, Victorian fretwork and the history of the dining experience. Working strictly with porcelain clay, the work is thrown, trimmed, altered and decorated, then fired to cone six in an electric oxidation atmosphere. Much of Lindsay’s MFA research was centered around not only the history of the table but also the development of laser cut tools, stamps, and molds that she continues to challenge and apply to her work.
