Potclays Emerging Makers Award
2011 Award Winner: Lisa Young
Lisa Young is a ceramicist and designer whose work deals primarily with the complexities of surface and pattern. Inspired by futuristic architecture and the perfection of computer based and manufactured design, she introduces a softer and more organic approach by hand decorating her ceramic vessels. By exploring the boundaries between the hard edged perfection and the more random organic shapes, she creates designs where the natural world and advancing technology may fuse.
Selected makers for 2011: Imogen Aust, Carys Davies, Kat Livesy, Amy Kennedy and Deanna Lee
