Lisa B Evans Ceramics
Brunswick, ME 04011
Maine is a deep source of inspiration where I have pursued an intuitive, self-guided career with clay. The aesthetics from life as a Landscape Architect are ever present in my work today.
Thrown and altered porcelain is my primary means of expression.Through my unique call and response throwing technique this beautifully pure palette is highly responsive, the perfect medium for the cobalt and the wild iron inclusions I forage.
At my wheel I abandon the idea of the perfect pot and lose myself in the throwing process seeking an equilibrium between myself and the clay body. This conversation pushes the boundaries between what each piece will withstand and my ability to stay in control. Many are lost in the process but what survives has an ephemeral beauty I find soulful and gratifying.
My work exhibits a simplicity and depth that lends it a timeless relevance and beauty. Layers of visual and physical texture, color and form, are subtle metaphors from my life as an artist that reveal themselves slowly over time.
