BUZIO--Lidya. Artist and ceramist, died of cancer on September 30, 2014 at her Greenport, Long Island home at age 65. Buzio's work was widely acclaimed in the ceramics field and was seen in major museum exhibitions across the country. Inspired by the buildings and skyline of lower Manhattan, her most noted ceramic vessels combining cylinders, cones, and hemispheres twist and juxtapose the rooflines, architectural details, and water towers of the city into a magical panorama that captures the urban scene. Born in Uruguay, in 1948, she studied with artists of the Taller Torres-Garcia in Montevideo. Buzio moved to New York City in 1971. In the 1990s, she moved to the North Fork of Long Island. Buzio's ceramics are in the Brooklyn Museum, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Smithsonian National Museum of American Art in Washington, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, the Nelson-Atkins Museum, the Everson Museum, the Victoria & Albert in London, many other museums and private collections. She is survived by her sister, Cecilia de Torres, her brothers Carlos and Julio Buzio, her husband Dan Pollock, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
