  • Lucas Tisland
    Lucas Tisland General Manager

    Lucas is the son of owner Cheryl Tisland and the General Manager of Burst Of Butterflies Art Studios.  Although Lucas spends most of his time working on the operations the studios, he is also one of our talented clay wheel throwing instructors.

    Lucas brings nine years of clay knowledge and expertise into the classroom understanding that anyone with a desire to learn can pick up wheel throwing. He provides a meditative and existential perspective on the world of clay and believes failure is the foundation from which we build in fact saying “there is no greater teacher than failure”. Throughout the class, Lucas focuses on the technical skill advancement of any and all experience levels and is certainly not afraid to add his quick witted humor into the mix.
