Lisa Hammond MBE is a soda firing potter who works at Maze Hill Pottery, Greenwich. She has been making pots for the best part of 40 years, in which time she has taught extensively, taken on 13 apprentices and pioneered soda glaze and shino firings.
Lisa's work is represented in galleries and museums both in the UK and internationally, including Goldmark Gallery.
Her work embraces an extensive range of thrown functional ware for the preparation, cooking and serving of food. It is immensely important to her that her work is used in daily life. Alongside functional ware, Lisa has always made a range of work that is more individual and playful. The development of these pieces is a result of time spent in Japan, making, firing and exhibiting.
Lisa's forms are strong, fluid and unfussy, retaining a suggestion of the soft plasticity of the clay.
