In 2003, longtime friends Joe Hornsby and Lisa Moore opened Liza Moz' Pottery Studio—the name adapted from a nicknamed bestowed on Lisa by her family. Lisa has since passed the business on to Joe solely, and creativity continues to flourish under his direction. Joe keeps the shop stocked with a variety of unfinished bisque ceramics cast into animal shapes, tiles, plates, and mugs, each available to be painted by visiting artists. After choosing a piece to work on, visitors may paint freehand or find inspiration by consulting the shop's library of stencil collections and idea books. Artists then sketch their designs and paint their pottery with a choice of more than 50 hues. The studio’s instructors also guide students through other artistic projects beyond ceramics, such as painting canvases, tiling mosaics, and making candles. Groups holding parties can bring their own snacks and drinks to the studio, and summer camp sessions guide children through creative projects with clay, glass, or paint.
Midnight Magic Studios’ boudoir shoots aim to make women of all shapes and sizes feel glamorous, whether they’re stretched out on a posh bed or reclining on the sleek leather seats of a limousine. Photographer Leeann, who helms the studio with her husband, Don, specializes in making gals feel comfortable as they channel their inner sultry diva. With her relaxed demeanor and keen eye for capturing emotion, she elicits candid-looking poses and expressions rather than smiles held in place by duct tape. Leeann and Don collaborate with clients on each shoot to capture their preferred tone—from flirty sweetheart to smoldering temptress—whether it is a solo session, bridal-boudoir shoot, a Pin-Up Party for a group of friends, or a for-his-eyes-only gift for a spouse.
