Lisa Hammond: Intuited Grace

Posted On September 1, 2009 0 Comments

It is not surprising that Lisa Hammond has been described as the best

woman potter working in Britain at the moment. I would go further. I

would say that she is a prominent member of a very elite group of

perhaps ten potters who, irrespective of style, gender or genre, are at

the very top of a very competitive ladder. Hammond’s recent work exudes

the strength, style and finesse of a potter at the very peak of her

form. Classic yet somehow contemporary, crisply defined yet with a

softness of form and surface, Hammond’s pots carry with them a complete

“rightness” of orchestration that is the result of a thirty-year career

as a professional maker of pots for a domestic setting.
