Potting in Penryn

Making with clay captured Lisa’s imagination from an early age due to its texture and versatility, as a ball of clay represents so many possibilities. She likes the challenge that throwing pots generates and the therapeutic headspace you enter as the physical process commands your full attention.

Lisa mostly makes functional pots that are simple in form, sometimes altered, but that offer a uniqueness in the way glazes and oxides combine to create colour and texture. Lisa sees her relationship with clay as an endless experiment with highs and lows but one that she consistently learns from.

Literally ‘Potting in Penryn’, Lisa creates her pots just a stone’s throw from Falmouth. She takes inspiration from nature and draws on experience gained during her career in wildlife and conservation. Her aim is to create pots that are both tactile and aesthetically pleasing.
