Barbara Willis ( née Thompson) (June 29, 1917 - September 3, 2011) was an American southern Californian ceramic artist. "She was among the first to adapt studio techniques to commercial pottery, using molds to mass produce simple geometric wares that had a hand-made look." After having a ceramic studio in North Hollywood from 1948 to 1958, Willis once again began to create her signature Terrene Pottery in her 70s and would continue hand-producing her ceramics into her early 90s.
