Claudia Lis

Since launching her studio, Claudia Lis has focused on developing a quiet body of celadon wares. Iron oxide migrates through the soft green glaze during firing, creating intricate markings reminiscent of ink stains on blotting paper, scorch marks and microscopic organisms.

Inspired by John Keats’ “Song of Opposites”, Claudia’s aesthetics bring together opposing forces such as randomness and control, immaculate surface and blemish, subtle colours and harsh contrast.  By uniting them in one piece she stresses the complimentary character of these opposites and the potential for beauty and reconciliation that lies within these unresolved tensions.
