Lori Rembetski fell in love with clay when she was sixteen. She prefers handbuilding to throwing on a wheel. The irregularities created on a slab, coiled, or pinched surface influences her work. She starts with an idea of what to create, but never knows exactly how the finished piece will look. She observes how the light falls on the surface of the clay. A lump in one spot often suggests a dog nose and from there a face soon emerges.
Lori Rembetski earned her BFA from Alfred University with an emphasis on Ceramics. She has been included in juried shows in Connecticut, New York, Rhode Island, Kansas, Pennsylvania, and Iowa. Lori received the First Prize in Sculpture at the Guilford Art League 63rd Annual Juried Exhibition and was awarded The Teddy Goberis Award for Excellence in Ceramics at the Mystic Arts Center. In addition her work has also been displayed in various local galleries, including: The Vault Gallery of Fine Arts, South Dartmouth, MA, Courtyard Gallery, Mystic, CT, Hygienic Art Galleries, New London, CT The Gallery at Lighthouse, Groton, CT and Sun Up Gallery, Westerly, RI.
She lives with her husband and rescue dog in New London, CT.
