AC+D Welcomes New Faculty: Lisa Jones
January 28, 2020
AC+D is excited to welcome a new faculty member this spring!! Lisa Jones, founder of Pigeon Toe Ceramics, joins our faculty for spring 2020 co-teaching Creative Entrepreneurship with Julie Beeler! Lisa brings a wealth of experience to the classroom as a maker, business owner, and creative entrepreneur.
As a multi-disciplinary artist and self-described ‘Professional Dabbler’, Lisa Jones aspires to find fresh perspective through innovative material combinations, in pursuit of a new perspective on the beautiful inherent in every day. With an aversion to the excess of mass-produced goods, Lisa formed Pigeon Toe in the winter of 2008, with a vision to create uniquely beautiful objects grounded in American crafts and manufacturing.
Eleven years in, Lisa’s work continues to innovate and is carried in retail stores around the globe. Her designs can be seen in countless commercial spaces and hotel projects large and small, as well as privately-held collections. Recently featured in Dwell Magazine, the New York Times, Sunset Magazine, and Vogue, her minimalist aesthetic is as celebrated as it is widely respected.
Lisa graduated with a B.F.A. in Intermedia from PNCA in 2006.

The event will take place with Miller’s ongoing exhibition as a backdrop for the talk.
