Elisabeth uses clay throwing skills developed over 35 years to form simple ceramic shapes as backdrops for free, swift brushwork drawings. She works with hot wax, painting directly on the newly glazed surface, then dipping pots in another glaze colour. During the kiln firing the designs move with the shape of the form, so pot and drawing become one. Inspiration comes from animals and birds she studies, drawing them until a few quick brush strokes can define their shape and form.
