LISBETH FORSBERG

Lisbeth has been developing and refining her work with the traditional Japanese firing technique raku for many years. She combines the shiny, colourful glazed surfaces with the matt black of the work in her simple and distinctly shaped jars, vessels and plates. Their practical function adds extra value to the sculpturally and precisely designed pieces, inspired by structures in architecture and nature. Lisbeth also works on decorative projects for public spaces.
