Lisa Hammond

Post by skipposal on March 6th 2013, 7:38 pm

I have two pieces by this wonderful potter - both bought from solo shows at Goldmark Gallery, Uppingham. Lisa was born in 1956 and has her studio and big wood-fired kiln at Maze Hill Pottery, Greenwich, SE London. I think she moved away for a while but is now back there. My first pot was (and still is) the most expensive pot I've ever bought - Mike kindly allowed me to pay it off in installments - must have thought I had an honest face Happy. Stoneware teapot with silver handle, tan soda glaze with finger wipes. 30cm (height to top of handle)




My second is a yunomi in her fabulous shino glaze, can't express how much I love this piece Cheeky Cut-sided black stoneware yunomi, lustrous shino with red blush. 8.9cm (height). Unmarked.

Lisa has been away in the middle of nowhere in Devon for a few years but you are correct that she is back working here in Greenwich, S.E. London........... so no wood-fired kilns allowed! It's back to cooking with gas!

Well, I was quite convinced that kiln was in London, but of course all that smoke would be banned

If you follow her on facebook she's just done a firing with others like Ken Matsuzaki of Shoji Hamada's rebuilt kiln in Japan. Fascinating project

I have these two ... took me a while to dig out the egg cup. I have to say looking at the photos of her stall that if you are going to invest in one of her pieces then surely you don't want a casserole dish or a jug? Her pieces are not cheap. they are not going to survive prolonged daily use. There are what look like pouring bowls - just the idea of these puts me off. Am I really meant to make cheese or the like in one of her pieces? Surely this belittles them? Odd that we here want the more elevated pieces... Yanomi, shino teabowls etc I mean Royal Copenhagen did not make dog bowls or toilet roll holders for a reason.

Both marked

She has assistants to help her with the functional
Pottery. Best to go for her personal pieces despite the higher prices.

As Rosanjin once said, "People content with low grade tableware can only produce low grade food. People raised on low grade food can only become low grade people."

So surely it is better to use functional ware you admire and make yourself a better person than to keep pots hoping they might be worth more than you paid for them one day?

Nothing is a dead cert, prices may well go up if you hold onto pieces, but may not even appreciate as fast as interest rates. May even go down a fair whack, especially compared to current "new" prices.

I do like her pots however and congrats to her for the MBE.
