elisa's black fired ceramics centre around the transformational magic of firing with sawdust in a closed container. each piece is wrapped in leaves and then placed in a tin with saw dust and sealed. during the firning process the pores of the clay open and the smoke of the burning sawdust enters the piece. as the work cools, the pores close and smoke is trapped in the clay body resulting in a spectrum of finishes from moody blacks to copper stains with imprints of the leaves.

elisa is propelled to explore the ephemeral cycle of nature. her work aims to capture and emulate the fleeting moments of beauty in the bloom and decay that signifies the transition of seasons and life cycles of plants.
