Praise for 'Eighteen Storeys'
“Lisa Krigel’s ceramics are a revelation – so different to previous bodies of work by the artist and a harmony of artistic vision, technical skill and exemplary design".
“The stacked, hand-thrown vessels – mezze and breakfast bowls, tea and coffee pots, cups and plates – are at once stark and strikingly beautiful. At first glance, suggestions of function – a handle or spout – might present themselves, but these are sculptural objects; architectural stoneware towers. Grouped together on sleeper-like oak boards, they create a tabletop cityscape. Glazes move through flat greys and steely blues to warmer buff colours, reflecting the concrete structures that inspired them. When disassembled, piece-by-piece, into their individual component parts, their practical purposes are slowly revealed. They are objects that invite touch and interaction. I would love to use them".
Of inspiration, ideas and the making of eighteen storeys
