Lisa Geue is an artist who works primarily in ceramics, creating ancient shape inspired vessels and organic looking sculptures with a focus on form and experimental glazing. With a background in photography and film, composition plays a role in both, the visual language and the photographic archive-like work. The Germany-born went to Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig from 2013 – 2019 to study Photography. In 2019 she traveled to Naarm and Jan Juc, Australia and lived at the ocean. Deepening her connection with nature, natural processes like mineralization, decomposition of coastal rocks through saltwater or cycles like high and low tide, have become inspiration for her practice. Geue has always appreciated and felt drawn to indigenous practices and ancient techniques. Not only in ceramics, but also in other crafts like Kijōka-bashōfu, the Japanese craft of making cloth from the banana fibre, Japanese bamboo weaving, natural dyeing with plant-derived dye or Pit- and Anagama fired pottery. Practices like that have been a significant influence in terms of resourcing mindfully and appreciating the craft she is doing.
