“At my roots I will always be a monogamous craft artist, quietly discovering new things, about simple materials, one question at a time. By stringing these explorations together I create my voice, with each piece building on what has come before. I find solace in the fact that continuing on this path creates a continuity which tells a story, with the promise that time spent learning through my hands holds meaning.”
Deborah Lozier received her BFA in crafts from Arizona State University, magna cum laude, 1984. She is an adjunct professor at CCA, teaching Color on Metal since 1994. Lozier is noted for her innovative use of enamel on fabricated copper forms, extending the materials and techniques beyond their roles of tradition. Whether the work is jewelry intended to be worn or a sculptural object for display, she brings to each piece a suggestion of ritual and past use. She has received grants from the City of Oakland and SNAG, is a past president of the Bay Area Metal Arts Guild and former co-chair of the Public Art Advisory Committee for the City of Oakland. Along with many private collections, her work is included in the permanent collection of the Oakland Museum of California.
