Lizzette Britton: A Ceramic Artist inspired by nostalgia and freedom

Lizzette is a Wanganui based ceramic artist, best known for her own brand of detailed clay art. Her work has been exhibited in several places over the North Island, and she is a regular participant in the Wanganui Open Studios Art Trail.

Lizzette has been building and setting up Glue Pots and Lemon Drops Studio and Gallery since the turn of the millennium. She has been working on her own collections while also doing a number of commissioned pieces for a Hawke’s Bay Architect creating miniature replicas of their houses as gifts for their clients.

At present Lizzette is in love with all things retro with a special focus on caravans finished in bright candy colored under glazes. Her inspiration comes from nostalgic stories or memories of childhood camping holidays. All of the items she makes are handmade one of a kind pieces. In addition to nostalgia-inspired clay work Lizzette loves restoring classic caravans. She owns a 1963 Starlette named Penelope Pitstop and 1959 Auckland Caravan Company caravan dubbed Clara Clayborn, which are used in exhibitions in conjunction with her clay work.

The model of Penelope can be recognized as the caravan used on the Heller’s sausage commercial on TV. As a finishing touch of the refurbishing the caravans are fitted out with authentic retro items Lizzette has collected.

Lizzette’s current work space and showroom are hosted in a converted 1920’s railway cottage in Wanganui, New Zealand. The cottage was moved to it’s current site and refurbished. The studio includes the workshop in the cottage and two additional buildings around the courtyard.

This Etsy Shop is the online extension to Glue Pots and Lemon Drops where you can purchase specific items online. At this time only items that are easy to ship are available online - to purchase larger ceramic sculptures see http://gluepotsandlemondrops.com/ceramic-art-portfolio/ and contact Lizzette directly. We are currently hashing out details for shipping & delivery of larger items before they will be available to buy online.

Lizzette is currently not taking any commissions.
