Theresa Otto lives west of Bishop, CA under the inspiring view of the Eastern Sierra. A native to the area, Theresa grew up hiking and skiing the mountains as she cultured her appreciation of the area. After leaving the Sierra to attend college Theresa received a nursing degree and studied ceramics as well, which continued to be her favorite hobby. After returning to the Sierra with her family, Theresa pursued her interest in ceramics and conceived the Sierra Scenes series of pottery in 1999.

"I feel magnificently blessed to live and enjoy the breathtaking beauties of the Eastern Sierra. My goal is to share my appreciation and interpretation of these offerings, and can think of no way as fun as molding form and design from the raw tactile element of clay."
