Lise Herud Braten
Lise Herud Braten's textural moon jar-like vessels convey a deep appreciation and keen eye for the finer details of the natural world. Using a combination of handbuilding, wheel throwing, and Japanese ceramic techniques, Lise constructs simple forms that become the palette for complex, planet-like landscapes. Each piece invites the viewer to draw closer and meditate on the subtle play of colors and textures on the surface.
Lise works with a range of stoneware and porcelain clays, and layers of slips, oxides, natural ash, organic inclusions and her own range of glazes. With a keen interest in natural forms and textures, Lise is always exploring new methods and techniques to incorporate into her process.
