Each tile has beautiful botanical imagery, reflecting Lisa’s love of the natural world.  Because Lisa uses 24ct gold the colour will never tarnish and will always retain a beautiful shimmer. The tiles have a small metal hanger attached on the reverse for displaying on a wall.

All Lisa’s pieces are handmade and totally unique. The piece you receive may not be the exact one shown in the image. However, it will be just as beautiful with only subtle differences.

‘I’ve always had a love of nature and been fascinated by the complex and beautiful natural structures and textures found in plants, bark, seed pods, corals and shells. It is this natural theme that inspires my ceramics.

I’m in awe of the illustrations by renowned German biologist, philosopher, physician, professor and artist Ernst Haeckel. I find endless inspiration in his incredible detailed drawings of sea life, their forms and textures.

I’m equally inspired by my surroundings. My garden, which my studio overlooks, has a direct influence on my ceramics. The structures in leaves, textures in a piece of bark, seed pods.

My vessels are constructed from layers of finely rolled tubes or cones of clay. These are organised in a structured formation building the thickness of the vessel wall. Some vessels are multi-layered and hold a solid, weighted volume. Others are simple one-layer vessels resembling seed pods and cones. This method of construction creates an intricate texture and articulation of surface. Surfaces are almost bone like with fossilised leaf patterns or inlayed textures. Simple washes of oxides highlight texture and the occasional use of gold leaf adds a sense of luminosity and luxury.’
