Beth Lo explores issues of family, her Asian American identity, and cultural marginality, among other topics, in her ceramics and collages. She received her MFA in ceramics in 1974 from the University of Montana, Missoula, where she has taught for many years. Lo employs traditional Asian techniques such as calligraphy and origami and borrows from more contemporary forms including souvenirs and toys.
