Lisa Firer Story

What did you study?

I studied a BA Psychology and Art history Wits, completed an H Dip Ed high school teaching diploma, a 3-year ceramic design diploma and then Psychology Honours

What work do you do and why did you choose this path?

I have had 2 work paths unfold simultaneously. I have a ceramic design studio and have also teach mindfulness meditation and Biodanza, a form of dance-movement. In terms of my ceramic life, this path chose me! I think that is often the case in creative fields. I fell in love with clay over 30 years ago. Initially I started working on my own as an artist and over the last 20 years my business grew to employ 6 people. I have always had a keen interest in psychological and holistic wellbeing. A difficult crisis in my life in my early 30s, being diagnosed with a non-Hodgekins lymphoma, invited me to dive more deeply into these arenas and I have been motivated to share what has been transformative for me in my own life with others over time.
