Leslie Montalto Ceramics

Leslie started her exploration of ceramics while attending college in Ohio.  She expanded her scope of influence in Tennessee under the tutelage of Jack Troy and Lana Wilson at the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts.  After a stint working with McKenzie Smith at the Baltimore Clay Works of Maryland, she was drawn to the majesty of the Green Mountains in Vermont, where she established her studio in the Mad River Valley in 2004.  Always evolving her work, Leslie strives to achieve a balance between positive and negative space, while incorporating the flow of nature.
