About Leslie Messersmith

My studio, Locust Hill Pottery, is in Mechanicsville, Va. My early training in production pottery and my degree in sculpture from VCU have carried me on a path to creating useful and beautiful objects. I also enjoy making sculptural, decorative objects. I use many different ceramic processes to create my work and am inspired by the natural world and by the rich history of ceramics worldwide. I participate in several local craft shows annually. You can see my work in these  Virginia galleries: A Touch of Earth in Williamsburg, Gallery 527 in Scottsville and in Richmond the VMFA Virginia Artisan Gallery in the gift shop.
