Harrow Open Studios

Harrow Open Studios introduces 7 new artists for 2021



Artist of the Week: Elisa Garimberti, Studio Potter

I had my introduction to pottery almost by chance when I enrolled for an evening class at the local college, I very soon found myself completely addicted to the medium and its versatility. When I sat at the potter's wheel for the first time, I was mesmerised by its soothing effect on my mind. Several years on, pottery is my treat and my escape from the busy modern life.

My work is mostly thrown stoneware vessels; I prefer making functional objects that can be used for everyday life. I like sitting at my wheel and letting my hands create an object. I sometimes like to modify the shape of this thrown pieces by carving into it at leather hard stage or using glazes to accentuate the maker’s marks.

My inspiration comes from nature, Japanese and Italian pottery tradition but also from the work of all the artists that work around me.

To see more of my work have a look at my Harrow Open Studios Page here.
