Clay Habitat Resident Maker


Colours Of The Land

Lise finds constant inspiration in nature; both around her and from her memories of growing up in a rugged landscape in Norway. Her primary interests are texture and natural, undulating forms, and she is constantly exploring new techniques, blends of materials and an array of found objects she uses as tools.

"My work reflects my memories of growing up in Norway, surrounded by mountains, forests and rocky beaches. I find the textures in craggy rock faces, lichen, moss and layered tree bark endlessly fascinating, as well as the natural asymmetry and imperfection that makes nature so beautiful. I find new life and states of decay equally inspiring. Many think of rocks and tree bark as not being very colourful, but when you look closely there is a huge range of colours, and I use slips, oxides and glazes to recreate some of this rich palette of sometimes unexpected colour combinations." — Lise. Ceramics Artist

Having lived in a big city for a long time, Lise feels compelled to create work that reminds her of the natural environment she loves so much, and to bring an impression of that into the home environment. She uses Japanese techniques such as stretching and carving, often in combination with wheel throwing, to create natural forms reminiscent of elements in the wild.

Lise works with a range of stoneware and porcelain clays, and layers of slips, oxides, natural ash, organic inclusions and her own range of glazes. Her work can often be described as somewhere between fine art and functional.
