About The Artist

Lisa Fleming • San Francisco, CA

BA in Fine Arts, and a second degree in Ceramics in 2012. Making ceramics allows me to channel my creative energy into an object. Concentrating on silhouette, line and surface allows me to express my drive for order, beauty and form. The clay forms I make are minimal yet sophisticated, elegant, spare, almost austere. All of my work is thrown on a pottery wheel with porcelain clay and I make all my glazes and colored porcelains in my studio. I fire in an electric kiln to about 2300 degrees

Q&A with the Artist

Tell us how your work is made.

I make my work on a pottery wheel with porcelain clay. (I recycle my trimmings with stains to make my colored porcelains) I refine the forms at every step of the process, striving to capture my ideal. I make all my glazes from dry materials in my studio and fire to 2300 with a slow cool.

What makes you passionate about the medium you work with?

Porcelain allows me to bring to life the forms in my imagination. The glazes allow me to play with color and drama and bring continual amazement and joy.

What is something unique about you or your practice?

That I make all my glazes myself and continue to experiment with them and with the forms I make. I also take all my own photographs and run all aspects of my business myself. I am learning constantly and I love all the challenges that brings.
