Lisa Katzenstein

Lisa’s work is concerned with reviving the status of floral decoration in ceramics. It is floral – but with a modern twist – with the emphasis on wildflowers and seed heads. She tries to convey the thorniness and invasiveness of plants, as well as their natural beauty. Her approach can be summed up as a walk in the country, not in the park.
Lisa’s medium is tin-glazed earthenware, also known as Maiolica, a technique used throughout Europe, also known as Delft ware. She paints directly on to an un-fired white glaze using wax resist and inlay techniques. The vase is then fired, incorporating the colours directly into the glaze.
Lisa is a member of the Craft Potters Association as well as The Sussex Guild.
