Elisabeth throws sculptural domestic ware in porcelain, aimed at giving pleasure both in display and practical use. The multi functional vessels can be arranged in groups, stacked or placed singly; each a sculpture in its own right.
Most of the intricate turned detail in this work is underneath, often deliberately hidden from view when upright; waiting to be discovered by the hands that hold them. The bare polished porcelain exteriors combine with subtle matt glazed interiors to provide functionality; contrasting the dark oxide rich glossy glazes in deepest blues and greens. The porcelain has a pleasing weight and tactile coolness that will absorb body heat when held and used. I intend that once a piece has been picked up, it’s hard to put down.
Elisabeth loves taking photographs and the pictures you see on this website are her own. Her work is inspired by odd items, usually small and seemingly insignificant: a corner of a page, a bit of rusty metal, or a pattern on the pavement.
Learning to throw pots was a long held ambition; she finds the meditative action of throwing as enjoyable as the resulting piece of work. She delights in the feel of the clay between my hands, the very making, the refining, the smoothing... the details.
Elisabeth is a ceramics graduate of the Cuty Lit. University.
