Lisa Klakulak is an avid traveler, and often draws inspiration from far-flung landscapes to create stunning fiber artworks. In the past, she’s crafted wearables that evoke lava flows and glaciers. This fall, Lisa debuts a series that draws from the vernacular of the human body. The new works reflect the soft textures and hues of hair and skin.
“Attracted by its protective and nurturing qualities, I found wool fiber a relevant material to use in my work that’s related to concepts of human vulnerability and security,” Lisa says. “I attribute the sense of contentment and calm that I feel when I’m working in the studio to the constant touch involved in the process, as well as bringing an idea into fruition. You need that idea, that inspiration.”
Made by hand in Oaxaca, these ceramics are as functional as they are elegant. From spice jars to vases, Oaxacan ceramics adapt to contemporary lifestyles while maintaining Mexican traditions.
