Lisa's work has been dedicated to reviving the status of “floral“ decoration in ceramics. However it’s floral with a modern twist, with an emphasis on wild plants. Once seen as weeds but now in our ecologically conscious times viewed as a marker for our changing relationship with the land and our sense of “natural beauty”.
Lisa graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1983 and for the first 16 years was an independent tableware designer. In 1999, however she went back her first love of hand painted tin-glaze ware. Maiolica as it's generally known is a technique of painting on top of a white un fired glaze, and after the painting is completed it's then fired to glaze temperature. Also known as Delft ware in Holland or Faence in France, this technique was developed to imitate the look of Chinese Porcelain which was being imported by the Dutch, one reason why Delft ware is mostly blue and white.
An article on her techniques can be found in the March/April 2015 edition of "Ceramic Review" in the "Knowledge" section.
She is a Professional member of the CPA (Crafts Potters Association) and has exhibited extensively in shows such as Ceramic Art London and the Oxford Ceramics Fair. Presently she is a member of the Sussex Guild and the Clay Culture group based in Hastings.
