Living Tree Studios is a semi-cooperative studio space in Summerfield, North Carolina.
Current Resident Artists include:
Potter Leanne Blake and Stained Glass artist Emily Foeller.
The studio is owned by Lisa Skeen, who works in clay and sterling, and also makes handmade soaps and toiletries.
Living Tree Studios is an expansion of Living Tree Pottery & Handmade Soaps, the business Lisa Skeen has operated out of her home since 1995. When Lisa outgrew the garage she had been using as her studio at home, she started looking for a commercial space to rent. After looking at space in Stokesdale, (but being hindered by antiquated town ordinances) Lisa settled on a building in Summerfield, NC that was built as a gas station about 1941. With the help of several friends, the place was cleaned up, painted, floors refinished and the pottery studio was wired for kilns. Living Tree Studios opened for business on October 1, 2001.
