Lisa van der Meer

I've always had great interest in art, but never created and only recently I discovered my passion for clay. From the moment I made my first pot, I was hooked. Clay has allowed me to create three-dimensional items, but more so I've found patience and the opportunity to embark on the journey of learning the many aspects that come with ceramics. When I was made aware of the Cobb Valley Residence I saw it as a new challenge, learning to create based on experiences and inspiration. The company during those 5 days, not being familiar with the history and surroundings together with a man-made element controlling a power of nature, made me think about a sense of belonging.

With this in mind I started creating. 

Unfortunately Lisa was unable to participate in the Nelson exhibition. You can find her hosting ceramic workshops throughout the bay. She can be contacted through the email below.
