The Artist

Australian born Laura Lizbeth started her Ceramic Apprentership in Berlin 2017 with Ceramic Master Felix Reinhard Mields. Learning the technical skills on the potters wheel and the unique technique of craquelé glaze. Combining what she learnt with her whimsical nature inspired designs, Laura has developed an array of vases, tableware and decorative objects that have a detailed, earthy and somewhat mystical feel. 

Finishing her Apprentership in 2020 with an award winning Final Piece (1st Prize in ´Die Gute Form´) that consists of 15 Vases. The following year Laura and her Husband Norbert were busy designing and building a unique market stall with the vision to share their ceramics with people who appreciate beautifully handcrafted Pottery.

Behind the wheel

For me, a good ceramic piece is a vessel or sculpture that displays the contrast from aesthetic elements that bring the piece into balance.

Grounded but uplifting, Stable but delicate, rough but elegant, matt and gossy, feminine and masculine.

I like to explore the variations and combinations of aspects that makes a piece whole. And as you see it, you want to touch it, hold it in your hands, eat from it and feel it on your lips.

I invite you to explore my ceramic work and enjoy what I have enjoyed creating.

The Clay

The material used is a unique Earthenware clay made and prepared here at the Ceramic studio in Berlin.

This clay is beautiful to work with from its smooth texture and  rich red/brown colouring due to the high iron content.

The clay is fired at a final temperature of 1050°C.

The Ceramic Studio

Located in the Northern outskirts of Berlin, you will find a quaint little artist hub where Felix Reinhard Mields set up his own Ceramic workshop and glazing laboratory in the 1980´s. He collected and restored old ceramic machines, built his own kiln and developed a unique clay recipe which we prepare directly in house/workshop. Over the years the workshop has became a welcoming gathering point for people of all ages who enjoy in the art of ceramics.

Here I completed my apprenticeship as a ceramic artist and continue to work alongside Felix to create beautiful pottery.

"Jedes einselne Stück, welches Lizbeth fertigt, ist von einer solchen Vollständigkeit, dass man glauben könnte, eine eigene kleine Welt in den Händen zu halten. Frei von Zeit und Raum, erzählen uns die handgefertigten Stücke ihre Geschichte. Da sind Wurzeln spürbar, die ihren Weg durch die Muttererde wachsen. Da ist der unendliche Kreislauf der Veränderung, ein ewiges Fließen von Wasser und leuchtender Luft.

Es ist Alles da. 

Ich halte eine Vase in meinen Händen und es fühlt sich an, als dürfte ich meinen kopf in den schützenden mütterlichen Schoß legen dürfen. Danke."
