Lisa Hammond 'A Sense of Adventure'
Delving into her artistic practice, this documentary provides an insight into the various stages that go into making Lisa Hammond's distinctive pieces. We see Hammond at her wheel throwing chawans (teabowls) and a large tsubo jar; firing and unpacking her kiln; and talking about her influences over the years, in particular her love of the Japanese pot-making tradition. Also captured on camera is her technique of spraying the soda solution into the firebox over a period of three hours, creating the characteristically rich and varied surfaces of her pots. Included with the film is a slideshow of works from the exhibition.
