"Lisa Krigel’s work is a visual delight. Form and function synthesis perfectly, through her crafting of clay and glaze, as beautiful kitchenware stacks up as domestic sculpture. Her configurations defy the saccharin and decorative.
It is the synthesis of the monumental structures that inform her pieces, and their domestic scale make the work such a strong statement. It appears that all her past influences have collided into these unique works that have the enjoyment of both play and food at their centre.”
Every piece in each tower is hand thrown on the potters wheel and made from a specially blended stoneware clay designed to achieve that concrete colour. Once bisque-fired, each part is meticulously sanded and polished to a smooth finish, glazed on the inside with a variety of satin matt glaze colours including paprika, orange, pale and lime green.
The work is then high-fired for durability and is food and dishwasher safe.
