“Beauty is not a need but an ecstasy. It is not a mouth thirsting nor an empty hand stretched forth, but rather a heart inflamed and a soul enchanted” – The Prophet by Khalil Gibran
Natural organic, archaic forms inspire Lisa’s creative work with porcelain. Her art objects enhance a room or living space and can be combined very well with wood, glass and fabrics.
Translucency is her way of meeting the infinite, the impossible: pushing the limits of her materials and of her craftsmanship. Her objects are made in the time-span of 6 to 8 weeks. The glaze-firing becomes the ultimate test and transformer of shape and colour.
Lisa was born and raised in South Africa. She is a concert singer, a composer and porcelain artist living a fully creative live, based near Zurich, Switzerland.
This is my third use of the hexagon as structural base. The play of light and shadows is enhanced with the transparent matt glaze. The eye is guided into the middle, making the mind wonder what is around the corner. On the outside a slow spiral elevates the observer’s perception landing on the upper-deck to slowly glide down the walls finding calmness in the rhythm, yet allowing the mind to feed on the irregularities. Here is a video I made after the bisque firing before glazing. It catches my joy!

Childhood memories of touching and probing strange things and textures in rock pools when we were on holiday in South Africa, where I grew up. I remember the fascination, the fear and excitement of discovering this other world. My nostrils flaring at the smell and the danger of the vast ocean!
