These handmade porcelain vases entitled Colorful Confinement are all one-of-a-kind originals. This vase series was created during Covid 19 lockdown. Each creation has been hand-stained, hand-built, and high-fired at 1250° C. The firings are orchestrated to provoke controlled deformation and maximum transparency. The pieces shift and sway during the firing process creating absolutely unique organic forms.
About the Brand
American sculptor Luisa Maisel creates ceramic sculptures which draw upon references from art history, current events, and her American culture. Her work is inspired by her social environment and her desire to explore clay with symbolic meaning. Maisel’s series all research the concept of commemoration and the passage of time.
Maisel finds that working with clay provides great freedom of expression, as the material fascinates her with its complexity in its transformation from liquid to solid, from dirty to clean, raw to fired, soft to hard, and banal to sublime. The freedom in form and expression, the glaze painting and the multiple firings are a source of ceaseless intrigue.
Born and raised in New York, Maisel received a BFA in Fine Arts with a double major in graphic design and illustration in 1987. At the age of 24, she left for Paris where she spent the following years working as a graphic designer and illustrator while teaching at the Parsons School of Design. At the age of 28, Maisel turned to sculpting and clay making to consecrate her creative expression.
Originally inspired by Georges Jean-Clos and the French Masters, her interests shifted in 2001 when the Twin Towers fell.
