All White Now

I'm usually drawn to brightly-coloured things, but these beautifully pale items caught my eye and I felt the need to write about them. They are made by Lisa, a sculptor/model-maker based in Bristol, England. She works with clay and takes her reference from sea creatures such as coral, jelly fish and sea urchins. What I love is that she likes to leave the tool marks, raw edges and texture of the clay so that it keeps more of an organic feel. A lot of Lisa's work is pierced and she leaves this unsmoothed so that it keeps a barnacle effect, yet the white of the unglazed clay makes it fresh and modern. Her work takes on a rather ethereal feel in it's transparency as well as its lace-like quality. You can see more of her work here.
