Lisa’s work investigates such issues as the value of design in craft, the relationship between user and product and the significance of objects as cultural vessels through through which to provoke reflection. She identifies her role as a catalyst between craft and design, object and user and seeks to stimulate a more conceptual dialogue through her experimental approach.
“Hold fast that which is good”, her most recent body of work, is inspired by Japanese “irezumi” (a form of tattooing) and the grace and beauty of animals found in mythology and folklore. By cultivating an affinity between object and user, these objects supersede mere function to become bearers of a higher cultural message. Modern artifacts, archaic yet contemporary. Vessels born from a heritage of wisdom and knowledge, time honored craft that aspires to become a storyteller of human nature.
