Law acquired her skills at Penland School of Crafts (fifty miles from Ashland, North Carolina), studying with Karen Karnes and Byron Temple. Her passion for functional forms was refined during a two-year apprenticeship with Temple. She received her MFA from New York State College of Ceramic Arts, Alfred University, New York. Law then taught for two years at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, and from 1989 to 2018 she was an adjunct ceramics instructor at Contra Costa College, San Pablo, California. She has enjoyed a balance of teaching and studio work throughout her life. Her studio has two gas kilns (high-fire reduction and soda) behind her home in west Berkeley. Since retirement, she has taught a summer workshop in her studio.
