In addition to her impressive minimalist paintings (please see her pages in the Paintings & Prints section), Lisa Wederquist delights us with her beautiful natural forms in clay. She works with raku, high and low fire techniques and expresses herself in folded and torn clay pieces as well as functional vase forms.
Lisa describes her calling to clay:
The ancient and elemental qualities of clay compel me to make works that evoke and explore our most basic, even primal experiences of everyday life. Intimacy, awakening, holding, gestating, breaking, sometimes exploding, mending, and building again.
Clay demands interaction, a listening touch, a tactile call and response, an invitation to go deeper. Curiosity and love for mud have found a home in my creative spirit.
