'Ritual' by Lisa Battle


Artist Statement

Ritual (2017)
Handbuilt from stoneware clay, sprayed glaze, wood fired to cone 10 in Noborigama kiln
24 x 13 x 12 in

Lisa Battle’s hand-built ceramic sculptures explore organic form, line and an undulating movement that is reminiscent of the sensual curvilinear grace of natural objects and landscapes. She is inspired by the primal elements – wind, water, and fire—and by the forces of nature. She also has a life-long love of dance, and her work often evokes the gestures and arching movements of a dancer. This piece, Ritual, suggests the dance of flame. The wood firing process lends this piece a surface with depth and subtle variations of texture and color, imparted by the movement of wind and fire through the kiln.
