Lisa Hammond MBE, a pioneer of soda-glaze firing, combines strong uncomplicated forms with highly tactile surfaces.
Alongside her series of thrown functional ware, this influential London potter explores a range of individual wheel-thrown vessels – bowls, bottles and jars that are decorated with brush marks and poured slips and glazes, taking on an intriguing depth when fired. The finished works suggest the softness of clay and celebrate a handcrafted quality.
Don’t miss this chance to admire Lisa’s recent body of work, through which she primarily explores a range of bottle and jar forms, each bearing individual and playful surface decoration.
Our “New Members” exhibition is packed with inspired works blurring the lines between art and craft. Showcasing something for each artistic taste; from the likes of Gail Altschuler, timeless simplicity by Jennifer Amon and Verity Howard’s sculptural pieces. The wide array of display also includes complex pieces from Timothy Copsey, red stone clay improvisational music inspired work of Julian King-Salter, domestic objects by Francis Lloyd-Jones balancing between looseness and definition, to a more contemporary storytelling through figurative ceramics by Craig Mitchell, and narrative visual fragments by Carolyn Tripp.
