Lisa Hammond

Lisa Hammond (b. 1956) is a British studio potter. She is a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association of Britain and its vice chair. She has specialized in vapour glazing since leaving college, first using salt and, since the early 1980s, soda glaze. 
Hammond worked in Greenwich, London, from 1979 and since has set up a studio at Okehampton, Devon. In 2003-2004, she spent three months making and firing in the Mino, Gifu, area for several exhibitions in Japan. She taught ceramics at Goldsmith's College, London,[6] and has lectured and exhibited widely.
Hammond has been described as one of the most committed and driven of modern studio potters, "one of a small number who have clearly inherited the mantle of studio pioneers like Michael Cardew" and "the best woman potter working in Britain." Her work is represented in museums and collections in the UK and abroad.
